The Regulatory Affairs Coordinator works in support of the IARU Spectrum and Regulatory Liaison Committee to provide expertise and coordination on issues relating to amateur licensing in CEPT. The Terms of Reference are as follows:
1 Draft proposals and discussion papers on policies to achieve the goals for radio amateur regulations set out by Conferences, or by the Executive Committee (EC) between Conferences.
2 Represent IARU R1 in the CEPT group dealing with radio regulatory matters concerning the amateur and amateur-satellite services, currently the Radio Amateur Forum Group (RAFG) of the Frequency Management Working Group (WGFM) and any other similar committees as necessary.
3 Stimulate IARU R1 Member Societies (MS) to establish and maintain contacts with their Administrations on radio regulatory and licensing matters and report any changes in licensing regulations to the RAFG.
4 When a policy has been adopted by a Conference or by the EC as an interim policy then
a. Provide MS with the necessary documentation.
b. Support their efforts to promote IARU R1 goals with their Administrations.
5 Provide information to MS on developments in the licensing of amateur services by means of regular circular letters or by special bulletins when urgent matters arise or when the RAC in consultation with the SRLC chairman and EC deem it necessary to consult MS on a proposed policy.
6 The specific goal of the IARU R1 MS will in some cases run parallel with the aims of other organisations within ITU Region 1. If this is the case then RAC will:
a. Advise the EC on the proposals being discussed in these organisations and on the suggested policy to be followed with regard to these proposals.
b. Where the opportunity arises, and in close consultation with the SRLC Chairman and EC, forward appropriate comments suggestions for amendments/additions etc. to the RAFG.
7 The RAC will carry out his work mainly by e‑mail. If required, the RAC may, after having obtained the consent of the SRLC Chairman and EC organise an ad hoc meeting between meetings of the General Conference.
8 The RAC may invite experts to such an ad-hoc meeting on the subject under consideration or representatives of MS who would be expected to be able to offer pertinent contributions to discussions.
9 The RAC shall in general not have any direct contacts with Administrations or radio amateur organisations outside Region 1 except as a representative of IARU R1.
10 Any contacts with radio amateur organisations outside IARU Region 1 considered necessary for a proper fulfilment of the tasks shall be channelled through the Honorary Secretary of IARU R 1.
