World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12)

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will host the World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12) in Dubai from December 3 to 14, 2012, to consider  possible revisions to the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs), a treaty instrument of the ITU.  The current ITRs were adopted in 1988 in Melbourne and appear in the Final Acts of the World Administrative Telegraph and Telephone Conference (WATTC-88). 


The Federal Communications Commission, together with other government agencies, industry and civil society, is working with the U.S. Department of State to develop U.S. proposals and positions concerning possible revisions to the ITRs.  The FCC is making information available to stakeholders and other interested persons this webpage to encourage participation in the preparation for WCIT-12.
