The Radio Regulations Board (RRB) is a part-time body comprising 12 members (or 6% of the total number of ITU Member States, whichever is the greater) representing the world's five regions (Americas, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and Australasia). 

It is the Board's job to approve the Rules of Procedure, which include technical criteria used by the Radiocommunication Bureau in the application of the Radio Regulations, to consider matters that could not be resolved by the application of the Radio Regulations or existing Rules of Procedure, to consider reports by the Bureau on investigation of cases of harmful interference, and to formulate recommendations for resolution of such interference. If agreement cannot be reached between an administration and the Board on a Rule of Procedure, the matter is submitted to a world radiocommunication conference for ruling. The Radio Regulations Board also provides advice to radiocommunication conferences and radiocommunication assemblies, and may perform any additional duties relating to the assignment and utilization of frequencies and the use of the satellite orbits, if they fall within the competence of ITU-R. The 12 RRB members are elected by the Plenipotentiary Conference for a term of four years.
