Walkie-Talkie Licenses Required

Pech Sotheary / Khmer Times Share:

The Telecommunication Regulator of Cambodia (TRC) warned last week that it would take legal action over people selling, repairing and using walkie-talkies without permission and in dangerous ways, such as using frequencies reserved for officials.
 
TRC director Mao Chakriya said a number of businesses operate in the capital without the relevant licenses to do so, which posed a risk to the public.
 
“The TRC will request collaboration with ministries or competent institutions to investigate and take action soon against the owners who sell and repair walkie-talkies who do not comply with the law.”
 
He referred to a statement released by the TRC on October 5, which reminded all those selling and repairing walkie-talkies to register for an annual license. The statement also called on users not to use reserved frequencies, to apply for a separate license in order to build antennae and record the names, addresses and serial codes of all equipment and buyers.
 
Im Vutha, a TRC member, said yesterday that an inspection of 26 electronics stores at the beginning of the year had only found six with the required licenses.
 
In September 2015, Phnom Penh Municipal Police chief Choun Sovann ordered his forces in Phnom Penh to check regularly the use of any types of radio transmitter, especially tuk-tuk drivers.
