C564:2018 Mobile Phone Base Station Deployment

C564:2018 (pdf 925kb)

Explanatory Statement (pdf 108kb)

The Mobile Phone Base Station Deployment Code is designed to:

  • provide greater transparency to local community and councils when a Carrier is planning, selecting sites for, installing and operating mobile phone radiocommunications infrastructure; and
  • allow the community and councils to have greater participation in the decision-making process of Carriers when deploying mobile phone base stations.
The revised Code sees a strengthening of consumer safeguards, especially in regard to the inclusion of small-scale infrastructure and replaces the C564:2011 Mobile Phone Base Station Deployment Industry Code.
