By Jason Lee

Last week, the FCC announced that the World Radiocommunication Conference Advisory Committee will hold a meeting on June 3, 2024, at the FCC headquarters as the first step in the process of preparing for the 2027 World Radio Communication Conference.  

The meeting will be open to the public at 10:30 a.m. and livestreamed at http://www.fcc.gov/live. The meeting going to focus on “WAC processes, including the final charter, committee structure, including the appointed chairs and vice-chairs, and working methods,” according to the notice. 

According to the International Telecommunication Union:  

“World radiocommunication conferences (WRC) are held every three to four years. It is the job of WRC to review, and, if necessary, revise the Radio Regulations, the international treaty governing the use of the radio-frequency spectrum and the geostationary-satellite and non-geostationary-satellite orbits. Revisions are made on the basis of an agenda determined by the ITU Council, which takes into account recommendations made by previous world radiocommunication conferences.” 

The FCC is directing inquiring minds to http://www.fcc.gov/wrc-27 to obtain the latest updates. Information and agenda on all scheduled meetings and advisory committee matters can be found here.
