1 ITU and the Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R)
Training on Enhanced Collaboration with the ITU for Central and Eastern European Administrations Geneva, 26 January 2009 ITU and the Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) Fabio LEITE Deputy-Director ITU Radiocommunication Bureau

2 Radiocommunications - regulations - standards Standardization Development

3 ITU-R history in brief 1906 (Berlin)
International Radiotelegraph Convention (1st Radio Regulations) 1927 (Washington DC) CCIR (International Radio Consultative Committee) 1932 (Madrid) Telegraph & Radiotelegraph Conventions merged: the International Telegraph Union became the International Telecommunication Union 1947 (Atlantic City) IFRB (International Frequency Registration Board) ITU as UN specialized agency 1992 (Geneva) ITU-R (Radiocommunication Sector ): RRB (Radio Regulations Board) BR (Radiocommunication Bureau) 2006 100 years of ITU Radio Regulations

4 ITU-R mission Role conducted through (inter alia): World and Regional Radio- communication Conferences Radiocommunication Study Groups Radio Regulations Board Radiocommunication Bureau “To ensure rational, equitable, efficient and economical use of the radio-frequency spectrum by all radiocommunication services, including those using satellite orbits, and to carry out studies and adopt recommendations on radiocommunication matters.” In implementing this mission, the actions in ITU-R aim at creating the conditions for harmonized development and efficient operation of existing and new radiocommunication systems, taking due account of all parties concerned.

6 World Radiocommunication Conference
WRC WRC World Radiocommunication Conference Updates the Radio Regulations (treaty status) Spectrum Allocation Notification procedures Administrative and operational procedures Adopts Resolutions Held every 3-4 years WRC

7 Radio Regulations (RR)
The Radio Regulations (international treaty) incorporates the decisions of the World Radiocommunication Conferences, including all Appendices, Resolutions, Recommendations and ITU-R Recommendations incorporated by reference. Frequency block allocations to defined radio services (Article 5) Mandatory or voluntary regulatory procedures (coordination, plan modification, notification, recording) that are adapted to the allocation structure

8 Radio Regulations Board (RRB)
Approves Rules of Procedure to facilitate the application of the Radio Regulations Considers cases of harmful interference & appeals against BR decisions on frequency assignment Part-time elected members & max. 4 meetings/year RRB

9 Radio Regulations Board (RRB)
12 RRB members elected by PP (Antalya, 2006) Region A (Americas) Ms. J. ZOLLER (USA) (Chairman) Mr. R. JONES (Canada) Region B (Western Europe) Ms. M. LIMODIN (France) Mr. M. ZILINSKAS (Lithuania) Region C (Eastern Europe) Mr. W. MORON (Poland) Mr. B. NURMATOV (Kyrgyz Rep.) Region D (Africa) Mr. H. LEBBADI (Morocco) Mr. S. TAYLOR (Nigeria) Mr. A. ZOURMBA (Cameroon) Region E (Asia and Australasia) Mr. P. GARG (India) Mr. S. MALIK (Pakistan) Mr. A. EBADI (Malaysia) (Vice-Chairman)

10 Space Services WRC Coordination and recording procedures for space systems and earth stations: capture, processing and publication of data and examination of frequency assignment notices submitted by administrations for inclusion in the formal coordination procedures or recording in the Master International Frequency Register (MIFR). Procedures for space related assignment or allotment plans Assistance to administrations on all of the above issues
