ECO Tools and Services

In this section you can find details on the consultations and questionnaires on which we are currently seeking views. You can also find information and links to all of our specialists online information systems and tools.

ECO provides a number of freely available online tools and services providing spectrum information to CEPT members countries, industry and general users alike. 

Forum was established in September 2009 in order to serve as a complementary tool for correspondence activities which is the main working method for some ECC groups. It provides additional features including the possibility to attach documents to a posting and create polls in order to seek participants' views on a wide range of issues. This Forum is now standard on all group pages since December 2012.

EFIS is the ECO Frequency Information System, a database which contains frequency information and licensing conditions for the CEPT member countries. EFIS is also the 'European spectrum information portal' in accordance with the European Commission Decision 2007/344/EC on the harmonized availability of information regarding spectrum use in Europe.  EFIS enables industry to have a single point for viewing the licensing environment across the European space. Go directly to the tool.

SEAMCAT is a software tool based on the Monte-Carlo simulation method, which is developed within the frame of the CEPT. The tool allows statistical modelling of different radio interference scenarios for performing coexistence studies between wireless systems (e.g. SRDs, GSM, UMTS, LTE, 5G systems, etc) in overlapping or adjacent frequency bands. The software is maintained by the ECO and distributed free of charge.

Further services provided are:

ECC Public Consultation
Draft ECC deliverables (Decisions, Recommendations, Reports) are subject to a period of public consultation, where comments are invited from CEPT administrations as well as any other interested parties.
Comments should be forwarded to the European Communications Office contact person, preferably by e-mail, and no later than the deadline indicated. The list of draft deliverables currently under public consultation can be found here.

ECC Work Programme Database
The purpose of the ECC Work Programme (WP) is to provide the ECC and its constituent bodies with the online facility of maintaining and updating their work programme on a frequent basis. The WP consists of a number of individual Work Items (WI) for which the details are stored in the Work Programme Database (WPDB).
