1 Regional Radiocommunication Conference 2006 (RRC-06) Regulatory and Procedural aspects François Rancy Chairman, Regulatory and Procedural Group

2 RRC-06 Agreement RRC-06 is expected to establish a new regional Agreement for digital terrestrial broadcasting in the frequency bands MHz and MHz in Region 1 (except a few territories) and Iran RRC-06 is expected to establish a new regional Agreement for digital terrestrial broadcasting in the frequency bands MHz and MHz in Region 1 (except a few territories) and Iran

3 Purpose of the RRC-06 Agreement Implementation of digital broadcasting, together with Implementation of digital broadcasting, together with –Protection of the existing and planned broadcasting –Protection of the existing and planned other primary services –Migration from analogue to digital (transition period) Establish a framework sufficiently forward- looking to accomodate future development in the broadcasting. Establish a framework sufficiently forward- looking to accomodate future development in the broadcasting.

4 RRC-06 Plans Attached to the RRC-06 Agreement, there should be: Attached to the RRC-06 Agreement, there should be: –one analogue Plan (existing and planned analogue broadcasting assignments, as defined by RRC-04); –one digital Plan containing digital assignments and allotments.

5 RRC-06 procedures - principles Guarantee the rights of the administrations, in particular those of developing countries Guarantee the rights of the administrations, in particular those of developing countries Reduce the burden of administrations and the BR Reduce the burden of administrations and the BR Any regulatory provision should be easily implementable without need for Rules of Procedures Any regulatory provision should be easily implementable without need for Rules of Procedures Take advantage of previous ITU Plans (ST61, GE89, GE84, space plans) Take advantage of previous ITU Plans (ST61, GE89, GE84, space plans) Relation with the Radio Regulations Relation with the Radio Regulations –the new Agreement may not contravene the RR; –possibly minimize, to the extent practicable, cross- references to the RR so as to provide a certain stability to the new Agreement.

6 Article 4 Framework for the evolution of the requirements of the administrations Framework for the evolution of the requirements of the administrations Addition or modification to an allotment/assignment in the analogue Plan or in the digital Plan Addition or modification to an allotment/assignment in the analogue Plan or in the digital Plan Coordination of other primary services with the broadcasting Coordination of other primary services with the broadcasting Option 1 based on GE89: full involvement of the BR Option 1 based on GE89: full involvement of the BR Option 2 based on ST61: bilateral agreements Option 2 based on ST61: bilateral agreements Option 3: coordination effected either through the BR or directly Option 3: coordination effected either through the BR or directly

8 Article 5 Notification of assignments for recording in the MIFR Notification of assignments for recording in the MIFR –Broadcasting –Other primary services Options under discussion Options under discussion –reference to Article 11 of the RR –development of a self-contained procedure Check of the conformity with the Agreement before recording in the MIFR Check of the conformity with the Agreement before recording in the MIFR

9 Article 5 Notification of broadcasting assignments for purposes other than broadcasting under certain conditions Notification of broadcasting assignments for purposes other than broadcasting under certain conditions –Same bandwidth –Shall not cause more interference –Shall not require more protection –Shall not put constraint on the Plan and its evolution § of GE89 (use of the band MHz for the fixed service) § of GE89 (use of the band MHz for the fixed service)

10 Conversion of a digital allotment Need to ensure that the resulting assignments conform to the original allotment. Need to ensure that the resulting assignments conform to the original allotment. Otherwise, the agreements of the administrations affected are required. Otherwise, the agreements of the administrations affected are required. Two options under discussion: Two options under discussion: –separate procedure in an Article 4bis; –examination at the stage of Article 5.

11 Transition period Period of migration from analogue to digital Period of migration from analogue to digital After this period, After this period, –the analogue Plan is deleted; –the digital Plan can be fully implemented without restriction; –analogue may continue, subject to not causing interference nor claiming protection. Duration Duration –Two options in the RRC-04 Report …<2015 …< <…< <…<2038 –Possibility to agree bilaterally on reduced transition period

12 Unresolved cases after RRC-06 Incompatibilities between the new digital Plan and Incompatibilities between the new digital Plan and –existing analogue broadcasting; or –existing other primary services. Agreement to be obtained before the digital assignment is implemented. Possibility of setting a deadline for coordination? Agreement to be obtained before the digital assignment is implemented. Possibility of setting a deadline for coordination? If agreement is not obtained, possibility to operate on a non-interference non-protection basis? If agreement is not obtained, possibility to operate on a non-interference non-protection basis? Protection to be afforded to these incompatible assignments with respect to proposed modifications to the Plan under Article 4. Protection to be afforded to these incompatible assignments with respect to proposed modifications to the Plan under Article 4.

13 Revision of ST61 and GE89 Avoid any overlap between the new Agreement and the current agreements Avoid any overlap between the new Agreement and the current agreements Two short conferences during RRC-06 to revise ST61 and GE89 Two short conferences during RRC-06 to revise ST61 and GE89 Abrogation of the parts of ST61 and GE89 relating to the bands MHz and MHz Abrogation of the parts of ST61 and GE89 relating to the bands MHz and MHz
