Registration to PP-18 is carried out exclusively online by each participant interested in participating. Every request for participation must be validated by the Focal Points (DFPs) designated by each administration and entity of the following categories entitled to participate:

    • Member States of the ITU (CV 268)
    • State of Palestine (Res. 99 (Rev. Busan, 2014))
    • the United Nations (CV 269A)
    • Regional Telecommunications Organizations (CV 269B)

    • Sector Members referred to in CV 229 (ROA, SIO or FDI) and CV 231 (Regional and other international telecommunication, standardization, financial or development organizations)

Provision of information through the online registration system does not exempt Member States from the need to submit an original credentials document (see Credentials section).

As per the ITU Secretary-General's commitment as an International Gender Champion, we encourage you to include women in your delegation.

* TIES Access (formerly called TIES account): the TIES access allows a delegate to access the registration form, as well as to open TIES-protected documents, and access other ITU services. The creation of the User Account does not automatically provide a TIES access. To request this TIES access rights, login to your user account and click on request TIES access. It will have to be validated by the Focal Point. Without TIES Access, a delegate will be able to register via the User account, but will not be able to open TIES-protected PP-18 documents.
