National Preparatory Working Group for the World Radiocommunication Conference (NPWG)
The World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC) is held by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to review and revise the Radio Regulations, the international treaty governing the use of the radio-frequency spectrum and the geostationary-satellite and non-geostationary-satellite orbits. It is held every three to four years. The WRC aims for reaching consensus on various changes in the Regulations to harmonise spectrum use on a global scale.
The changes to the ITU Radio Regulations will result in changes and/or updates to our spectrum plan and possible changes to policies and regulatory matters that may affect allocations to over 40 radiocommunication services and technical, operational and regulatory conditions for the use of the radio frequency spectrum and satellite orbits.
The key role of NPWG or National Preparatory Working Group for the World Radiocommunication Conference is to develop Malaysia’s position on WRC agenda items. Membership of the NPWG includes representative from the industry, government agencies and other spectrum users.
Members of the public who have interest in the use of radio spectrum and satellite orbital are strongly encouraged to participate in the NPWG.
