This paper comments on the role of the market and the role of the regulator and regulatory tests such as a total welfare standard in promoting an efficient allocation of spectrum. It summarises key elements of Australias spectrum management regime, outlines why a total welfare standard is the appropriate test when assessing regulatory options in the context of spectrum management, and comments on when this sort of cost-benefit analysis is likely to be useful.
