ITU-T and TSB Documents in DMS
How do I download study groups documents from DMS?

The following steps describe the procedures on how to download study group documents from DMS. Before you download, please take note of the following:
  • Some study group documents are TIES restricted which means you will be required to provide your TIES username and password before you can download. For more information on TIES, please the TIES FAQs page.
  • All ITU-T documents are posted in MS Word version whenever available. In some cases, a PDF version of a document is posted when a MS Word version is not available.
  • If the size of the document is more than 200k, a zip format of the document is automatically made available in addition to the original document for quicker download.
  • All ITU-T documents are posted in English and in other ITU official languages if available.
