ITU prepares for World Radiocommunication Conference 2015

Press briefing on 2 April 2015 at 12:30 pm

Geneva, 30 March 2015 – The second conference preparatory meeting (CPM) for the forthcoming World Radiocommunication Conference is currently in session in Geneva. Over 1100 delegates from ITU’s 193 Member States and the private sector are examining preparatory studies on the regulatory, technical, operational and procedural aspects of the agenda of the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-15), which will take place in Geneva, 2-27 November 2015.

World Radiocommunication Conferences, held every three to four years, are mandated to review and, where necessary, revise the Radio Regulations, the international treaty governing the use of the radio-frequency spectrum as well as geostationary-satellite and non-geostationary-satellite orbits. The agenda is determined by ITU Council, which takes into account recommendations made by previous World Radiocommunication Conferences and which can include issues identified by ITU Plenipotentiary Conferences.
