During the first week of the Plenipotentiary Conference, time will be allocated to high-ranking delegates from ITU Member States, for the most part Ministers responsible for telecommunications, who have expressed their wish to deliver statements in Plenary on general policy issues related to the basic functions/missions/objectives of the Union.

In light of the heavy workload of PP-18 and the three-week time-frame within which it must complete its work, such policy statements will be limited to one speaker per delegation. As per Council 2017 decision, statements will be sharply limited to three minutes. The delegate will speak from his/her seat.

Guidelines

Guidelines to support delegations in the preparation of policy statements for PP-18 will be published in due course. 

Request a slot

Requests for policy statement slots will be accepted from 1 May 2018.

Use of Logos


ITU logo

1.  The ITU logo forms an essential part of the Union’s institutional image and property. As such, it is protected under the provisions of Article 6ter of the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property.

2.  The ITU logo may therefore not be used without the prior written consent of the Secretary-General or his/her representative duly authorized to that effect. Any written request to use the Union’s logo must be duly substantiated (detailed information regarding the reasons for the request, manner in which it is intended to use the logo including details of the supports (electronic, paper, etc.) to be used, and possible use of other logos alongside that of ITU, as well as the precise contact details of the person making the request, etc.) and sent in a timely manner to jur@itu.int or:

Legal Affairs Unit, ITU
Place des Nations
CH-1211 Geneva 20

3.  Without prejudice to a detailed, case-by-case study of each request, authorization to use the Union’s logo WILL NOT BE GRANTED in the following cases:

  • Use in connection with products or commercial services;
  • Use in a manner inconsistent with the purposes and goals of the Union;
  • Use in a manner that is liable, in the Secretary-General’s view, to damage the Union’s image, reputation, neutrality or intergovernmental character and image of the Plenipotentiary Conference;
  • Use for electoral purposes.

4.  Where authorization is granted, the logo must be used in accordance with the terms and conditions laid down, and within the limits established, in the letter of authorization. Under no circumstances, however, may the logo or any of its constituent elements (such as format, proportions, graphic design, colours, etc.) be altered, adapted or modified.

Conference logo

1.  Use of the logo created especially for the 2018 Plenipotentiary Conference (the “Conference”) is likewise subject to prior written authorization from the Union’s Secretary-General or his representative duly authorized to that effect. Any written request to use the Conference’s logo must be duly substantiated (detailed information regarding the reasons for the request, manner in which it is intended to use the logo including details of the supports (electronic, paper, etc.) to be used, and possible use of other logos alongside that of ITU, as well as the precise contact details of the person making the request, etc.) and sent in a timely manner to jur@itu.int or:

Legal Affairs Unit, ITU
Place des Nations
CH- 1211 Geneva 20

Inasmuch as the ITU logo forms an integral part of the Conference logo, the cases listed in § 3 above in which requests for authorization will not be granted also apply to the Conference logo.

2.  Subject to the foregoing, authorization will, in principle, be granted where the Secretary-General considers that the usage is conducive to achievement of the Conference’s mandate or seeks to promote its work.

3.  Where authorization is granted, the logo must be used in accordance with the terms and conditions laid down, and within the limits established, in the letter of authorization. Under no circumstances, however, may the logo or any of its constituent elements (such as format, proportions, graphic design, colours, etc.) be altered, adapted or modified.
