ITU Patent Statement and Licensing Declaration Information
Following a decision by the Radiocommunication Assembly 1997, a Patent statement and licensing declaration information system containing information on those statements relating to ITU-R Recommendations was developed and is available for consultation online.

The ITU-R database is not certified to be either accurate or complete, but only reflects the information communicated to the BR. As such, it may be viewed as simply raising a flag to alert interested parties that they might wish to contact the organization who have communicated patent statements to the BR in order to determine if patent licences must be obtained for application of a particular ITU-R Recommendation.
The ITU has received information on patents registered in territories not officially recognized by ITU Member States. Please contact the Secretariat for further details.

The ITU-R database contains:

  • the ITU-R Recommendation number to which the statement refers;
  • the declared patent policy of the organization in its communication to the BR;
  • information on the patent (country in which the patent has been obtained: status, number, etc.);
  • the date when the patent statement was received at the BR;
  • the organization that holds the patent and its contact address, telephone, fax and email.
