                        EUROPEAN COMMON PROPOSALS FOR
                          THE WORK OF THE CONFERENCE

                                             PART 26
                                          Agenda item 2


2       to examine the revised ITU-R Recommendations incorporated by reference in the Radio
Regulations communicated by the Radiocommunication Assembly, in accordance with
Resolution 28 (Rev.WRC-03), and to decide whether or not to update the corresponding references
in the Radio Regulations, in accordance with principles contained in Annex 1 to Resolution 27
(Rev.WRC-07);


Introduction
Agenda Item 2 is a standing WRC agenda item which aims at examining the revised ITU-R
Recommendations incorporated by reference in the Radio Regulations. Additionally Agenda Item 2
covers also situations where an ITU-R Recommendation is cited using mandatory text in the
resolves of a WRC Resolution, which is itself cited using mandatory text in a footnote or a
provision of the Radio Regulations and any actions necessary to clarify the status of ambiguous
references to ITU-R Recommendations generally.
Europe identified two issues under this agenda item:
Issue A: Proposal to update Resolution 27 (Rev. WRC-07) in order to include a list of cross-
references in RR Vol. IV.
Issue B: Proposals regarding possible updates of references of ITU-R Recommendations.

                             RESOLUTION 27 (Rev.WRC-12)
     USE OF INCORPORATION BY REFERENCE IN THE RADIO REGULATIONS

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2012),
           considering
a)     that the principles of incorporation by reference were adopted by WRC-95 and revised by
subsequent conferences (see Annexes 1 and 2 to this Resolution);
b)      that there are provisions in the Radio Regulations containing references which fail to
distinguish adequately whether the status of the referenced text is mandatory or non-mandatory,
           noting
that references to Resolutions or Recommendations of a world radiocommunication conference
(WRC) require no special procedures, and are acceptable for consideration, since such texts will
have been agreed by a WRC,
           resolves
1       that for the purposes of the Radio Regulations, the term “incorporation by reference” shall
only apply to those references intended to be mandatory;
2       that when considering the introduction of new cases of incorporation by reference, such
incorporation shall be kept to a minimum and made by applying the following criteria:
–           only texts which are relevant to a specific WRC agenda item may be considered;
–           the correct method of reference shall be determined on the basis of the principles set out
            in Annex 1 to this Resolution;
–           the guidance contained in Annex 2 to this Resolution shall be applied in order to ensure
            that the correct method of reference for the intended purpose is employed;
3       that the procedure described in Annex 3 to this Resolution shall be applied for approving
the incorporation by reference of ITU-R Recommendations or parts thereof;
4        that existing references to ITU-R Recommendations shall be reviewed to clarify whether
the reference is mandatory or non-mandatory in accordance with Annex 2 to this Resolution;
5       that ITU-R Recommendations, or parts thereof, incorporated by reference at the conclusion
of each WRC, and a cross-reference list of the regulatory provisions, including footnotes and
Resolutions, incorporating such ITU-R Recommendations, shall be collated and published in a
volume of the Radio Regulations (see Annex 3 to this Resolution),
           instructs the Director of the Radiocommunication Bureau
1      to bring this Resolution to the attention of the Radiocommunication Assembly and the
ITU-R Study Groups;
                                                  3
                                          CMR12/5(Add.26)-E


2       to identify the provisions and footnotes of the Radio Regulations containing references to
ITU-R Recommendations and make suggestions on any further action to the second session of the
Conference Preparatory Meeting (CPM) for its consideration, as well as for inclusion in the
Director’s Report to the next WRC;
3       to identify the provisions and footnotes of the Radio Regulations containing references to
WRC Resolutions that contain references to ITU-R Recommendations, and make suggestions on
any further action to the second session of the Conference Preparatory Meeting (CPM) for its
consideration, as well as for inclusion in the Director’s Report to the next WRC,
           invites administrations
to submit proposals to future conferences, taking into account the CPM Report, in order to clarify
the status of references, where ambiguities remain regarding the mandatory or non-mandatory status
of the references in question, with a view to amending those references:
i)           that appear to be of a mandatory nature, identifying such references as being
             incorporated by reference by using clear linking language in accordance with Annex 2;
ii)          that are of a non-mandatory character, so as to refer to “the most recent version” of the
             Recommendations.



                   ANNEX 1 TO RESOLUTION 27 (Rev.WRC-07)
                         Principles of incorporation by reference
                                            (No change)



                   ANNEX 2 TO RESOLUTION 27 (Rev.WRC-07)
                        Application of incorporation by reference
                                            (No change)



                   ANNEX 3 TO RESOLUTION 27 (Rev.WRC-12)
          Procedures applicable by WRC for approving the incorporation
             by reference of ITU-R Recommendations or parts thereof

The referenced texts shall be made available to delegations in sufficient time for all administrations
to consult them in the ITU languages. A single copy of the texts shall be made available to each
administration as a conference document.
During the course of each WRC, a list of the texts incorporated by reference shall be developed and
maintained by the committees. This list shall be published as a conference document in line with
developments during the conference.
Following the end of each WRC, the Bureau and General Secretariat will update the volume of the
Radio Regulations which serves as the repository of texts incorporated by reference in line with
developments at the conference as recorded in the above-mentioned document and will include a
                                                 4
                                          CMR12/5(Add.26)-E


cross-reference list of the regulatory provisions, including footnotes and Resolutions, incorporating
such ITU-R Recommendations.

Reasons: Vol. IV of the Radio Regulations contains all ITU-R Recommendations incorporated
by reference. A cross-reference list will improve the usability of Vol. IV in total and ease the work
to be done under the constant WRC-AI 2. It is also to be noted that there is an obligation for the
ITU to update this list according to the decisions of each WRC after its agreement on the update of
Vol. IV of the RR, which ensures its accuracy.

                  Classification of emissions and necessary bandwidths
                                               (See Article 2)
MOD          EUR/5A26/9


         2) Formulae and examples of emissions designated in accordance with this Appendix are
given in the most recent version of Recommendation ITU-R SM.1138. Further examples may be
provided in other ITU-R Recommendations. These examples may also be published in the Preface
to the International Frequency List. (WRC-12)


Reasons: Recommendation ITU-R SM.1138-2 has superseded Recommendation ITU-R
SM.1138-1. The reference to this Recommendation in Appendix 1 is not mandatory and therefore it
should be change from specific version to the most recent version. Consequentially this
Recommendation should be deleted from Volume IV of the Radio Regulations.

MOD EUR/5A26/11


                           RESOLUTION 741 (Rev. WRC-12)
     Protection of the radio astronomy service in the band 4 990-5 000 MHz from
     unwanted emissions of the radionavigation-satellite service (space-to-Earth)
                   operating in the frequency band 5 010-5 030 MHz

The World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2012),

            considering

a)         that unwanted emissions from space stations of the radionavigation-satellite service
(RNSS) operating in the frequency band 5 010-5 030 MHz may cause interference to the radio
astronomy service (RAS) in the band 4 990-5 000 MHz;

b)        that WRC-2000 decided to introduce a provisional power flux-density (pfd) limit in the
band 4 990-5 000 MHz to protect the RAS, and invited ITU-R to conduct studies to review this
limit;

c)        that protection requirements for the RAS are given in Recommendations ITU-R RA.769
and ITU-R RA.1513, and are different for geostationary (GSO) and non-GSO satellite systems,

            noting

a)         that Recommendation ITU-R M.1583-1 provides a methodology based on the
equivalent pfd (epfd) concept for calculation of interference resulting from unwanted emissions
from non-GSO systems of the mobile-satellite service or RNSS into radio astronomy stations;

b)          that Recommendation ITU-R RA.1631 provides antenna patterns and maximum antenna
gain to be used for compatibility analyses between non-GSO systems and RAS stations based on
the epfd concept;

c)          that Recommendation ITU-R RA.1513 recommends acceptable levels of data loss to
radio astronomy observations, stating in particular that the percentage of data loss caused by any
system should be lower than 2%,

            resolves

1           that in order not to cause harmful interference to the RAS in the band 4 990-5 000 MHz,
the pfd produced in this band by any GSO RNSS network operating in the 5 010-5 030 MHz band
shall not exceed –171 dB(W/m2) in a 10 MHz band at any radio astronomy station;

2           that in order not to cause harmful interference to the RAS in the band 4 990-5 000 MHz,
over the whole sky, for elevations higher than the minimum operating elevation angle min1
specified for the radio telescope, the epfd produced in this band by all space stations within any
non-GSO RNSS system operating in the 5 010-5 030 MHz band shall not exceed 245 dB(W/m2) in
a 10 MHz band at any radio astronomy station for more than 2% of the time, using the methodology
in Recommendation ITU-R M.1583-1 and a reference antenna with a radiation pattern and
maximum antenna gain given in Recommendation ITU-R RA.1631;

3          that the limits referred to in resolves 1 and 2 shall apply to RNSS systems as from
3 June 2000;

4           that administrations planning to operate a GSO or a non-GSO RNSS system in the band
5 010-5 030 MHz, for which complete coordination or notification information, as appropriate, has
been received by the Bureau after 2 June 2000, shall send to the Bureau the value of the maximum
level of pfd as referred to in resolves 1 or the value of the maximum level of epfd as referred to in
resolves 2, as appropriate,

              instructs the Radiocommunication Bureau

as from the end of this Conference, to review all RNSS systems for which complete coordination or
notification information, as appropriate, has been received by the Bureau before the end of this
Conference for the band 5 010-5 030 MHz, and, if appropriate, to revise its findings regarding
compliance with No. 5.443B, taking into account additional information received under resolves 4.


Reasons: To update the reference within Resolution 741 to the new version of Recommendation
ITU-R M.1583.




1   Until adoption of a definition of min by ITU-R, and publication of notified radio astronomy observatory
    data, a value of 5° should be assumed in appropriate calculations.

Reasons: The current reference to Recommendation ITU-R M.1187-1 is already not worded in a mandatory way. It is proposed to clarify that
the reference is not mandatory and to consequently remove Recommendation ITU-R M.1187-1 from Volume IV of the Radio Regulations.



                                                                       ______________________
