Advisory Committee (WRC-03 Advisory Committee) to assist it in the development of proposals for
WRC-03. Consistent with the Federal Advisory Committee Act, membership in the WRC-03 Advisory
Committee was open to anyone.
4. In November 2002, the Conference Preparatory Meeting (CPM) finalized a report to
WRC-03.5 The Report from CPM to WRC-03 represented the best information on technical, operational,
and regulatory/procedural issues relevant to the WRC-03 agenda at the time of its preparation and was
used as the basis for the discussions at the Conference.
5. On January 8, 2003, the WRC-03 Advisory Committee finalized its recommendations and
forwarded them to the Commission for our consideration. In addition, NTLA submitted letters to the
Commission containing draft proposals that had been developed by the Executive Branch agencies. By
public notice, the Commission requested comment on these recommendations and draft proposals.6 The
US. Proposals for WRC-03 that resulted for this open public process made proposals for many of the

addition, the United States worked with other administrations in Region 28 to craft Inter-American

8 The ITU divides the world into three geographic Regions. The United States is in Region 2, which includes North
and South America. Region 1 is primarily Africa, Europe, the former Soviet Union, and the Middle East. Region 3
is primarily the remainder of Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. See 47 C.F.R. 2.104 for the official definitions
and map of the three ITU Regions.
