What the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) calls “The global treaty behind your mobile communications” — the ITU Radio Regulations (2016 edition) —is now available online and at no cost via the ITU website.Published in ITU’s six official languages, the new edition of the Radio Regulations is also available for purchase in hard-copy format and as a multilingual DVD.

“Following the successful completion of World Radiocommunication Conference 2015, I am pleased to announce the issue of the ITU Radio Regulations, edition of 2016, which will come into force for all the signatory parties on 1 January 2017,” said François Rancy, Director of the ITU Radiocommunication Bureau.”

Calling the treaty “an incredible success story,” ITU Secretary-General Houlin Zhao noted that the global treaty upon which mobile communication and other uses of wireless technology internationally depend, will celebrate its 110th anniversary this year. Delegates to the World Radiocommunication Seminar (WRS-16) in Geneva this December will mark the occasion. — Thanks to ITU (media release)
