ITU has three Sectors: Radiocommunication (ITU-R); Telecommunication Standardization (ITU-T); and Telecommunication Development (ITU-D). Each Sector has its own unique characteristics and activities. Companies or organizations may become a member of one or more Sectors of ITU and may join as a Sector Member or Associate.

Sector Members have the right to participate across the full range of activities of the Sector they join, whereas Associates can participate in one Study Group of a given Sector. Much of ITU’s technical work in developing standards, recommendations and best practices occurs in Study Groups, which gather specialists to address specific topics. Contact us for more information.

ITU has reduced fees for SMEs that wish to participate as an Associate. Find out more here.

Academia have the right to participate in all three sectors with an annual reduced fee. Find out more here.
