Have your say in developing global telecoms regulations

By

For the first time, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is inviting the general public to input contributions to its upcoming World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12).

WCIT-12 will be held in Dubai in December 2012 and according to the ITU, will be "a landmark global treaty-making conference that will define the general principles for the provision and operation of international telecommunications networks around the world."

It is being held to revise the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs) that define the general principles for the provision and operation of international telecommunications. The current regulations date from 1988: they were finalised at the World Administrative Telegraph and Telephone Conference (WATTC 88) in Melbourne.

The web site set up to receive public consultation opens today. It is the result of a decision by ITU Council in July to make a draft of the principal input document to the WCIT-12 conference publicly accessible, and to establish a website where all stakeholders could express their views and opinions on the content of that document or any other matter related to WCIT.

The ITU says: "There is no restriction on the number of contributions any party may make, and contributions may be either nominative or anonymous." The site will remain open until 3 November. Inputs will then be made available to the ITU's 193 member states, which "have been urged to consider and take account of submitted content in their preparations for WCIT-1," ITU says.

An FAQ and a set of background briefs covering the main topics likely to be discussed at the conference can be found here.
