World Radiocommunication Seminar 2018 held in Geneva

The 2018 edition of World Radiocommunication Seminar (WRS-18), has been held in Geneva from 3 to 7 December.This year’s seminar focused on the regulatory aspects of the use of the radio-frequency spectrum and satellite orbits, in particular the application of the provisions of the ITU Radio Regulations, the international treaty that regulates the use of spectrum and orbit resources by wireless and satellite communications.

Every two years, ITU World Radiocommunication Seminars are organized, alongside Regional Radiocommunication Seminars, which are regularly held throughout the year to assist ITU Members to prepare for World Radiocommunication Conferences (WRCs). WRCs are held every four years to update the ITU Radio Regulations so as to ensure interference-free operations of radiocommunication systems and provide all countries with equitable access to the radio spectrum.
