Objective 
 
To serve as an advisory committee to CITEL, promoting the planning, coordination, harmonization, and efficient use of the radio spectrum, as well as geostationary and non-geostationary satellite orbits for radiocommunication services including broadcasting.
 
To implement this objective, Permanent Consultative Committee II has the following mandates. 
 

Mandates 

In accordance with the relevant regulations, procedures, and recommendations of the ITU:
 
  1. To promote among the Member States harmonization of the use of the radiofrequency spectrum, taking into account especially the need to prevent and avoid harmful interference, as well as protection against the electromagnetic environment.
  2. To promote and foster the development of radiocommunication services, including broadcasting, in the region.
  3. To promote the development and implementation of new technologies that enable the needs of Member States to be met in terms of efficient spectrum use.
  4. To encourage and promote the development of convergent telecommunication/ICT networks and services based on the new technologies, taking into account their ongoing evolution.
  5. To provide information to the Member States on the outputs and outcomes of the World Radiocommunication Conferences.
  6. To coordinate regional preparations for ITU World and Regional Radiocommunication Conferences, including the preparation of inter-American proposals (IAPs) and common positions, and to conduct interregional consultations in preparation for those conferences.
  7. To work in coordination with the different CITEL groups in those areas which, by their nature, lend themselves to joint action.
  8. To promote the efficient use of the radiofrequency spectrum and of satellite orbit resources in the region, based on the priorities and requirements of the Member States.
  9. To encourage active participation by the private sector as associate members.
