The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is organizing the Regional Radiocommunication Seminar 2022 for Asia-Pacific (RRS-22-Asia-Pacific), kindly hosted by the
Ministry of Communications (MOC) of Fiji, in cooperation with the Pacific Islands Telecommunications Association (PITA) and supported by The
Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts (DITRDCA) of Government of Australia.
This Seminar will be held at Nadi, Fiji, over the period 15-20 December 2022* (please see the Draft programme, on Tab:
The content will be organized as follows (for further details, please see on main RRS web site):
- A pre-seminar web tutorial will be available on this website (please see Tab:
Download Resources). This tutorial will provide the basic concepts of spectrum management at national and international levels, their links with ITU Radio Regulations (RR), ITU and ITU-R structures and functions, including the study groups and BR departments, and ITU basic texts, with emphasis on the RR and their associated Rules of Procedure (RoP). A good understanding of the pre-seminar web tutorial concepts is required in order to be able to participate actively in the Seminar.
- The first part of the Seminar will cover concepts related to international spectrum management and the procedures for recording of frequency assignments in the Master International Frequency Register (MIFR). This will be followed by a review of the modifications to the RR, associated World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC) Resolutions and ITU-R Resolutions decided by the last WRC (WRC-19) and
Radiocommunication Assembly (RA-19), as well as a review of the agenda of the upcoming WRC-23. This part will also cover the current regulatory framework for international frequency management and the ITU-R Recommendations and best practices regarding the use of spectrum for both terrestrial and space services. This will include basic training on ICT tools developed by ITU for frequency notifications for those services and for the technical examinations. In addition, information on BR and BDT spectrum management activities will be provided.
- During the following part, tutorials will be carried out on the use of these tools for terrestrial and space stations. These
tutorials will enable the participants to get experience with ITU notification procedures as well as with the software and electronic publications made available by the Radiocommunication Bureau to the Administrations of Member States and to the ITU-R Sector Members.
RRS-22-Asia-Pacific will conclude with a forum on: “Radiocommunication Trends: Opportunities and challenges for the Asia-Pacific Region”. This session’s topics are indicated on the Draft programme (please see on Tab:
