Support a call on this. Perhaps given the interest by so many
stakeholders in 2012, the ITU can be encouraged to open the process of
review a little - perhaps be open to comments from other stakeholders...

>>> Good morning. As I think was briefly mentioned on last Call, the ITU (pursuant to a decision of the 2014 Plenipotentiary) has established an Expert Group to look at a potential revision to the ITRs adopted in 2012.

>>> The Review (on which contributions are called for) will include, among others:
>>> 1. an examination of the 2012 ITRs to determine its applicability in a rapidly evolving international telecommunication environment, taking into account technology, services and existing multilateral and international legal obligations as well as changes in the scope of domestic regulatory regimes;
>>> 2. Legal analyses of the 2012 ITRs;
>>> 4. Analyses of any potential conflicts between the obligations of signatories to the 2012 ITRs and signatories to the 1988 ITRs with respect to implementation of the provisions of the 1988 and the 2012 ITRs.
>>> ICANN is planning to attend the initial meeting which takes place in Geneva on 9/10th February. Any views ahead of that on the three questions above would be most welcome. Perhaps we might discuss on a Call in advance.
