Ministry of Environmental Protection

        Pursuant to the Pharmacists (Radioactive Elements and Products) Regulations, 1980, or the Pharmacists Regulations, issued under the Pharmaceutics Ordinance, the Ministry of Environmental Protection is empowered to grant erection permits and operation permits for our antennas and other radiation generating equipment. The Ministry of Environmental Protection has adopted the International Radiation Protection Agency’s standard as a basis for the consents it gives for the erection and operation of antennas.

        We have received a permit from the Ministry of Environmental Protection with regard to our transmission antennae and other radiation generating equipment in our principal teleport in Re’em, effective through September 2012. The permit for our Emek Ha’ela teleport was assigned to us by Bezeq following our acquisition of the teleport and is effective through April 2013. We are in the process of registering the permit in our name. We have retained the Radiation Safety Division of the Committee for Atomic Energy to perform regular inspections of our facilities, and to certify that we comply with the guidelines recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection.

        The Non-Ionizing Radiation Law (5766-2006), enacted on January 1, 2006, defines the various powers of the Ministry of the Environmental Protection as they relate, among other things, to the grant of permits for antenna sites, and sets standards for permitted levels of non-ionizing radiation emissions and reporting procedures. Pursuant to this law, which went into effect on January 1, 2007, a request for an operating permit from the Ministry of Environmental Protection with respect to either new sites or existing sites requires a building permit for such site(s). In addition, pursuant to the Non-Ionizing Radiation Regulations (5769-2009), which went into effect on January 24, 2009, a permit holder is required to perform radiation measurements at the end of each permit year, as well as at such times as shall be prescribed by the Ministry of the Environmental Protection, and report the results to the Ministry of the Environmental Protection. Operation of an antenna site without a permit from the Ministry of Environmental Protection may result in criminal and civil liability to us or to our officers and directors.
