IARU and the RTOs

There are six regional telecommunications organizations that play important roles in World Radiocommunication Conferences (WRC):

Decisions at WRCs are made by consensus. It would be impossible for the 193 ITU Member States to reach consensus on dozens of difficult technical issues during a four-week conference; much of the work of developing consolidated proposals and positions is done by the RTOs in the months and years leading up to a WRC.

Each of the RTOs recognizes the IARU as representing the amateur and amateur-satellite services and permits IARU participation in their meetings.
