Agenda of the Plenipotentiary Conference

The Plenipotentiary Conference is ITU's top policy-making body that sets the general policies of the organization for the next four years. The agenda is a standing document sufficiently broad to enable discussions and debate on many issues. It is embodied in the ITU Constitution as its Article 8. The work of the Conference is based on proposals tabled by Member States within the general framework of the agenda.


In order to perform its work, the Plenipotentiary Conference establishes committees; the structure of the Conference is decided by the Conference itself at its first plenary meeting.


At its first meeting, the PP-14 Steering Committee will establish a general calendar for the work of the conference. This general schedule will be reviewed periodically throughout the Conference to take account of progress made. On this basis, weekly schedules will be issued. The Plenary as well as each Committee will establish daily schedules for the work to be covered at each of their sessions (see Nos 66-67 of the General Rules of Conferences, Assemblies and Meetings of the Union).
