3     Proposal to organize a workshop on combating counterfeiting

Mr Isaac Boateng, Vice-chairman of SG11, proposed to organize a workshop during next SG11 meeting (27 June - 6 July 2016) on “Combating counterfeiting using conformance and interoperability solutions” taking into account the wish of SG11 Management to promote existing activities of Q8/11 in this field and the desire to involve more stakeholders to progress related work in SG11. The detail proposal is in TD 1131 (GEN/11). The main objective of the workshop is soliciting views, proposals and ideas from ITU experts and experts around the world for further studies during the next study period.
WP3/11 agreed to hold a workshop as proposed and Mr Isaac Boateng, Vice-chairman of SG11 was appointed as a Coordinator.

4     SG11 restructuring in view of WTSA-16

During the preceding joint Rapporteur groups, three special sessions were organized on 27-28 and 29 June 2016, under the chairmanship of Mr Kaoru Kenyoshi, SG11 Vice-chairman / NEC Japan, to discuss SG11 restructuring in view of WTSA-16.
During the special session, the revised Question text for next Study Period as well as modifications to the SG11 part in WTSA Resolution 2 were discussed and an initial proposal agreed. This proposal is however subject of further contributions and discussions at next SG11 meeting.
Mr Kenyoshi also shared a power point which included some consideration on the proposal of TSB Director to merge SG11 with S13, SG15 and WP2/2. These considerations were shared by the participants and further comments are requested for the coming SG11 meeting.
The modified terms of references are to be found in the FTP site TSB will harmonize the current proposal in a new TD to be submitted to SG11 meeting in June/July.

5     Outgoing Liaison Statements

The following table shows the list of proposed outgoing liaison statements. Even if the following liaison statement was discussed and supported by WP3/11, it was decided to postpone to send this liaison statement to next SG11 meeting in June/July 2016 when Question 12/11 and Q7/11 will have the chance to review the incoming liaison statement from SG20 and perhaps add more information to be shared with SG20.
