Powers and Immunities Reference Group (PIRG)


To help provide Australians with better telecommunications services more quickly and cost effectively, telecommunications carriers have limited special powers to enter land to inspect it and to install and maintain facilities.

The PIRG is representing interests of telecommunications carriers , property owners (landholders, asset owners, public utilities), Government and the regulator to consider issues as they relate to the deployment and maintenance of telecommunications and landholders’ infrastructure. The PIRG focuses on issues which may be resolved by mutual co-operation between the parties. The group aims at creating an enhanced relationship with improved processes of engagement and communication between the parties and to minimise the need for legislative or regulatory reform.
