World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC)
World Radiocommunication Conferences (WRC)
are held every three to four years. It is the job of WRC to review, and, if necessary, revise the Radio Regulations
, the international treaty governing the use of the radio-frequency spectrum and the geostationary-satellite and non-geostationary-satellite orbits. Revisions are made on the basis of an agenda determined by the ITU Council
, which takes into account recommendations made by previous world radiocommunication conferences.
The general scope of the agenda of world radiocommunication conferences is established four to six years in advance, with the final agenda set by the ITU Council two years before the conference, with the concurrence of a majority of Member States.
CITEL Preparation for WRC-15
PCC.II is developing common positions and preparing Inter-American proposals on the radiocommunications and radiobroadcasting topics planned for the world and/or regional conferences convened under the auspices of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). At the World Radicommunication Conferences (WRC), the international treaty known as the Radio Regulations is being revised. These regulations govern the use of the radiofrequency spectrum and satellite orbits. The Radio Regulations contain frequency allocations for over 40 radiocommunication services, ranging from amateur and professional radiocommunications to mobile wireless technologies and satellite communications.
