NTIA Preparation for the World Radiocommunication Conferences

NTIA is responsible for coordinating the federal government's participation in the International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) World Radiocommunication Conferences (WRC) and related national and international meetings. NTIA receives recommendations for U.S. preliminary views and proposals for these World Radiocommunications Conferences from the Radio Conference Subcommittee (RCS), a subcommittee of the Interdepartmental Radio Advisory Committee (IRAC). This subcommittee is tasked with preparing for WRCs, including the development of recommended United States proposals for the conferences and preparatory meetings.

After the RCS makes recommendations to NTIA, NTIA will review and revise these recommendations and determine which proposals will be put forward by the executive branch to be considered in the national preparation process. NTIA will work with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), who represents the civil spectrum community, and the State Department, to create the United States Preliminary Views and United States Proposals for the WRCs.
