Happy Birthday, ITU Radio Regulations (1906 – 2016)

On Monday, December 12, the ITU paid tribute today to 110 years of
international cooperation among its members states on the ITU Radio
Regulations, an international treaty for governing the use of the
radio-frequency spectrum and satellite orbits for ubiquitous wireless

The ITU Radio Regulations ensure interference-free operations of
radiocommunication systems and provide all countries with equitable
access to the radio spectrum - a scarce natural resource that does not
distinguish between national borders and needs to be harmonized

Houlin Zhao, ITU's Secretary-General, said, "ITU is proud to proclaim
the 110th anniversary of the ITU Radio Regulations as a success story
of international cooperation through consensus building among its
member states with the inestimable support of telecommunication
industry partners. With the growing complexity of our interconnected
world and ubiquity of wireless systems, it is now more important than
ever to maintain the pace and efficiency of radiocommunication
conferences to ensure the timely and responsive evolution of this
precious instrument. The ITU Radio Regulations are now more important
than ever."

Starting with the signing in Berlin on 3 November 1906 of the first
International Radio Telegraph Convention, which brought together 30
maritime states, the Radio Regulations have grown with 110 years of
revisions and innovations into the 5-volume treaty of 2000 pages of
the 2016 edition. They now cover more than 40 different
radiocommunication services and frequencies ranging from 9 kHz to 3000
GHz, with internationally agreed governing principles and regulations
on which the rights and obligations of ITU's 193 Member States to use
the spectrum and satellite orbit resources are based. The objective is
that these scarce resources be used efficiently and equitably, free of
harmful interference.

Since 1906, 38 World Radiocommunication Conferences have revised the
ITU Radio Regulations to respond to technological and social
development. The 2016 version was adopted by the World
Radiocommunication Conference 2015 (WRC‑15). As with previous
versions, it was adopted by consensus, which is the guarantee that
this treaty as it evolves, will continue to be reflected in national
legislations and enforced by national governments.
