Finland wants to ensure that its legislation poses no difficulties for the development of Cognitive Radio and thus efficient use of spectrum. The Finnish legislation concerning radio spectrum will be amended accordingly during this autumn. Testing in Cognitive Radio is meant to be started in the beginning of next year.

"It is clear that change is needed and we want to promote Finland's opportunities to be among the leading countries in the development of Cognitive Radio", says Mr Harri Pursiainen, Permanent Secretary at Finland's Ministry of Transport and Communications.
