The implementation of smart grids is the future in the way of the modernization of the electrical system as we know, this modernization brings lots of challenges to be tackled, one of them is the deployment of an effective, robust and reliable communications network that support the requirements of Smart Grids. Wireless communications become a viable solution to complete this task using the benefits considered in the proposed technology under the concept of Cognitive Radio, it uses techniques such as dynamic spectrum access to optimize communication way and improve characteristics in terms of information channels performance, however its implementation depends on the proper legislation regarding the use of radio spectrum in each country, in our case the legislative gap under Colombian regulations is wide, where dynamic access of this resource has not been take in count, so it’s necessary to make an analysis from the point of view of legislation for the use of this emerging technology and its practical application concerning SG communications among others.
