An online version of the ITU-T A.1 (11/2012) Annex A justification form for proposal of new work items aiming at becoming Recommendations is now available for testing from the ITU-T Study Groups web pages.


Once the proposal of a new work item is discussed and favorably reviewed at a meeting of the relevant Question, the Rapporteur or proposed editor can use the new online form to facilitate future entry of the new data into the work programme, and to allow easy extraction and formatting of the information (as a WinWord file) for inclusion in the respective meeting report.


The information will be displayed on the public ITU-T work programme webpages once there is agreement at the respective parent group to start development of the new work item, and data consistency check by TSB.

Access to information about Interim, Rapporteur meetings and e-Meetings of ITU-T study groups and TSAG is enhanced as of today, making it easier for delegates to find and participate in the most relevant ITU-T activities:

  • Browse meetings of all groups simultaneously in the ITU events calendar
  • View a specific study group's Interim Meetings (by following the link on the SG homepage under Other Meetings)
  • Access detailed meeting information for a selected event
  • Download a meeting notification letter to support participation

The new page has two views: concise and extended. The concise view (default) summarizes the latest meeting information for events planned between major study-group or TSAG meetings. Hovering the mouse over a Question's ID shows the objectives planned for that Question. Clicking on the ID opens a new page showing the full details for planning your attendance to the meeting. The extended view is accessible with a single click at the top of the page, and provides extended information for all meetings on a single page.

TSB is launching a new online system for questionnaires. The first such questionnaires have now been posted for Study Group 3s Latin America and Carribean (LAC) Regional Group: please see e.g.

The corresponding Circular will be issued next week.

The advantages of this system include the following:

  • Security: Delegate responses are TIES protected and processed by ITU. 
  • Ease of use: Access to questionnaires is through the Study Group website.
  • Question variety: Multiple choice, true/false, open-ended, mandatory/non-mandatory
  • Rapid processing and functionality: Real-time results, custom reports, individual response, and visually pleasant graphics

To access the questionnaires (that may be cited in a TSB Circular), delegates can simply enter their TIES username ( and password.  They can follow the numbered questions and indicate their choices by clicking on them or by providing text in the case of open-ended questions.  A progress bar indicates how far along they are and a thank you message confirms when they have completed the questionnaire.

As part of the ITU effort to progressively move ITU tools under its single sign-on (SSO) infrastructure, members will now use SSO to submit AAP comments through the AAP website.
SSO enables a smoother user experience since services federated under the SSO infrastructure do not require subsequent logins once logged into another service. When first logging in, users will see a new login screen.

In addition to the AAP comment submission tool, the following services already use the ITU SSO infrastructure:

  •     SharePoint sites
  •     International numbering resources databases
  •     Misuse of E.164 numbering resources
  •     ITU-T electronic registration and subscription services
  •     ITU-T WP A.5 reference submission

Other services planned for migration under the SSO infrastructure in the near future include the informal FTP areas (IFAs) and Adobe Connect remote participation services.
