Notice No. SMBR-003-00 — Proposed Amendment to Broadcasting Procedures and Rules Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 (BPR - 1, 2 ,3, 4, 5, and 7) Regarding the On-Air Testing Procedure
Industry Canada announces its intention to amend all relevant Sections of Broadcasting Procedures and Rules Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 regarding certification under the on-air testing procedure.
Currently the BPR's stipulate that "following successful on-air tests, the applicant's consultant shall certify to Industry Canada that the station is ready to commence operation in accordance with the approved technical submission and request permission to commence normal broadcasting schedule".
The purpose of this amendment is to clarify that certification under the on-air testing procedure that the broadcasting undertaking is ready to commence operation may be performed by any qualified licensed professional engineer.
This amendment is in force pending revisions to the relevant BPR's.
