HAKOM at the World Radiocommunications Conference (WRC-15)

 Zagreb, 2 November 2015 – The World Radiocommunications Conference (WRC-15) was opened today in Geneva, the seat of the International Telecommunications Union. The Radio Regulations are amended at the World Radiocommunications Conference once every three or four years, based on the topics agreed in advance. The amended Radio Regulations will be valid until the next conference. Global agreement is required in order to achieve the necessary coordination of use of radio frequencies and the economies of scale or due to the international nature of services themselves, such as, for example, air traffic, maritime or satellite services. The agenda of the conference includes various topics from the radiocommunications sector classified into more than forty items. The discussions at the WRC will therefore cover the possibilities for allocation of parts of the frequency band for new services or for the upgrading of the existing radio services. The conference also necessarily includes agreements on technical parameters and conditions for sharing the spectrum in order to ensure interference-free operation of radio devices. This year's World Radiocommunications Conference was opened with a plenary session at which Mr. Festus Dadau from Nigeria was elected as the chairperson.  
 
The Republic of Croatia is represented at WRC-15 by the Croatian Regulatory Authority for Network Industries (HAKOM), the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs. HAKOM's participation in the conference will be based on its activities within the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations  (CEPT) as a regional organization that prepared joint positions for the WRC that were a subject of two public consultations organized by HAKOM.
 
There are more than 3500 participants at the conference representing 162 members of ITU and international organizations in the field of radio communications. HAKOM will be represented at the WRC by Krunoslav Bejuk, Ivančica Sakal, Željko Tabaković and. Danijel Vidaković. Read more, on HAKOM's website, here...
