The EFIS database offers the possibility to look at the band's use (9 kHz to 275 GHz) in a specific country and compare it with other European countries. It is also of interest to compare the use of the frequency spectrum with the European Radio Spectrum Plan (ERO Report 25), which is the basis for harmonizing the use of the radio spectrum.
The EFIS database also provides information on the requirements for the use of radio equipment in different countries and the allocation of frequencies between operators of public electronic communications networks to provide electronic communications services. Besides, the database provides access to national and international legislation regulating the use of radio frequencies.
The use of radio frequencies is a cross-border issue and requires close cooperation between adjacent countries.
It is common practice for regulators in neighboring countries to negotiate on radio frequencies, concluding coordination agreements or declarations as appropriate.
The purpose of coordination agreements is to make coordination procedures more efficient, ensure equitable access to radio spectrum resources, and avoid harmful cross-border interference.
