    • Question 15 of ITU-T Study Group 11 (Q15/11) "Combating counterfeit and stolen telecommunication/ICT devices" is addressing the growing problem of counterfeited telecommunication/ICT products and devices, which is adversely affecting all stakeholders in the ICT field (vendors, governments, operators and consumers).

Cooperation among ITU T study groups, between ITU-T and ITU-D as well as with external bodies outside the ITU (in particular with SDOs), will be required to gather a complete information in this regard. Q15/11 and Q17/11 welcome contributions to progress standardization in these fields.
