Proposal for article 10
1. Introduction and background
The ITRs were agreed in 1988. Subsequent to that, provisions were added to the Constitution regarding the entry into force of revisions of the Administrative Regulations and regarding notifications of consent to be bound by such revisions. Those provisions were added to Article 54 of the Constitution in 1998.
Consequently, it would appear that paragraphs 3 and 4 of Article 10 may no longer be needed. It may be more appropriate to align the final provisions of the ITRs with Article 59 of the Radio Regulations (Entry into force and provisional application of the Radio Regulations). The relevant paragraphs of Article 59 of the Radio Regulations state:
59.1 These Regulations, which complement the provisions of the Constitution and Convention of the International Telecommunication Union, and as revised and contained in the Final Acts of WRC-95, WRC-97, WRC-2000, WRC-03, and WRC-07, shall be applied, pursuant to Article 54 of the Constitution, on the following basis.
