4. Technical session
As usual, if the SG5 meeting is not combined with a workshop, we organize a technical session. This is an internal tutorial session (nearly 2 hours) on dedicated matters. This time the subject was: ICT & CC, to present the main subjects studied in the new WP3/5. The presentations were based on the deliverables of the previous FG on Climate change, as these documents form the basis of the work of WP3/5.
The Technical session was very well attended.
5. Home Networks Special Group
At the November 2008 SG5 meeting it was agreed, and reported in SG 5 R-01, that a special group would be set up to study some issues regarding damage to equipment in the home environment. At the May 2009 SG5 meeting it was agreed that Questions 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 13 need to be involved and a web page has been set up, see HNSG. At the October 2009 SG5 meeting it was agreed to have a new Recommendation to provide all requirements to minimise upset and damage to home networks. These requirements include: Resistibility, Safety, Earthing, Risk Assessment, Installation of Overvoltage Protection, Wiring Installation, Ring Earth and Special requirements.
6. Editing Group
In order to assure the high quality level of SG5 Recommendations, an Editing group was established at the beginning of the current study period. With the change of the mandate and the enlargement of the Study Group, it is necessary to have members who are experts in the new CC subject. Two new members, (Dave Faulkner (UK) and Franz Zichy (US)) will complete the Editing Group. The complete list of SG5 editorial team is:
7. Rapporteurs/Liaison Rapporteurs
A new Rapporteur was nominated for Q12/5 (as the original Rapporteur will continue with new Question 17/5): Mr. Xing Hai Zhang (Huawei, China). Mr Didier Marquet (France Telecom Orange) was confirmed as Associate Rapporteur for Q19/5.
In order to reinforce the liaison with IEC TC 108, a Liaison Rapporteur was nominated: Mr. Phil Havens (Littelfuse Inc.).
8. SG5 Regional Groups
8.1 Regional group for Africa Region
This group was established during the previous meeting of SG5. The web page was created and it was decided that the first meeting of this Regional Group will be held in June 2010 in Kenya.
A Questionnaire was submitted for this meeting in order to establish an overview of the practices implemented in the African countries and the standards applied to ensure that telecommunication installations comply with human exposure limits, and to evaluate African countries' knowledge of Study Group 5 standards on the subject. Unfortunately this time only very few representatives from African countries participated in the SG5 meeting, it was not possible to organize an ad-hoc regional group meeting to study this questionnaire. It was decided to post it on the website.
8.2 Regional group for Arab Region
A document was submitted to SG5 with the proposal to create a new SG5 Regional group for the Arab Region. This proposal was accepted by SG5.
The objectives of this group are as follows:
8.3 Regional group for Americas Region
A proposal was submitted to SG5 to create a new SG5 Regional group for the Americas Region. After discussion it was agreed that this group will be created during the next meeting of SG5 to be held in Argentina.
9. JCA on ICT & CC
The first meeting of JCA on ICT&CC was held on 14 October 2009 under the Chairmanship of Mr. Ahmed Zeddam (Convener) and Mr. Dave Faulkner (Co-convener).
