The GMPCS-MoU is a cooperative framework signed by Member States, GMPCS System Operators, GMPCS Terminal Manufacturers and Service Providers to memorialize the non-contractual and non-legally binding terms of their cooperation. The objective of the cooperation is to allow GMPCS subscribers to take their terminals anywhere and, more importantly, to use them in countries where they are licensed. The final text of the GMPCS-MoU was adopted on 18 February 1997. It contains six (6) articles dealing with type approval of terminals, licensing of terminals, marking of terminals, customs arrangements, access to traffic data and review.
