[CAN/US] Proposals for the work of the conference

Summary: 

Canada and the United States want the conference to agree first on the scope of the ITRs before embarking on suggested changes.

Implications: 

The idea would put a fundamental fight at the front of the conference and, theoretically at least, resolve an issue that may otherwise be the cause of endless disagreements as the hundreds of proposed ITR changes are reviewed.

I. Introduction

In the interests of facilitating a successful outcome to the World Conference on International Telecommunications 2012 (WCIT-12), we propose that the conference consider and agree on several fundamental issues concerning the scope of the International Telecommunications Regulations (ITRs) before considering specific proposals for treaty text revisions. We believe this approach will ensure that all proposals to WCIT-12 will be given the careful consideration they deserve.
