[AUS] Proposals for the work of the conference
I. Australian Principles for Considering Proposals to Amend the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs)
Resolution 171 (Guadalajara, 2010) resolved to discuss and examine all proposals for revision of the ITRs, provided that those proposals:
i. are consistent with the purposes of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) set forth in Article 1 of the Constitution;
ii. are in line with the scope and purpose of the ITRs as set out in its Article 1, with the understanding that CWG-WCIT-12 could consider proposals for the revision of Article 1 of the ITRs;
iii. reflect, inter alia, strategic and policy principles, with a view to ensuring flexibility in order to accommodate technological advances;
iv. are of relevance to be included in an international treaty.
In consideration of Resolution 171, Australia will be guided by the following principles when assessing proposals to amend the ITRs:
1. The ITRs establish environmental settings for the interconnection and interoperability of telecommunication networks.
2. Proposals are consistent with the ITU Constitution and Convention.
