International Telegraph Conference (Brussels, 1928)

10 September - 22 September 1928 - Brussels, Belgium

This was an administrative conference, intended only to regulate code languages, following the establishment of the Committee for the Study of Code Languages by the International Telegraph Conference of Paris (1925). The Committee met in Paris on 19 October 1925 and at Cortina d’Ampezzo (Italy) from 2-26 August 1926. There were also meetings in Washington on 11 and 13 October 1927 on the occasion of the International Radiotelegraph Conference of Washington (1927).

The Conference resulted in a revision of the Regulations for the international service. There was no revision of the International Telegraph Convention of St. Petersburg. However, a protocol on code languages supplementing and amending the Regulations for the international service was approved and signed.

Finally, the decision was made to convene the next International Telegraph Conference in Madrid in 1932 at the same time as the Radiotelegraph Conference.
