Prepare and submit your proposals:
Conference Proposals Interface (CPI): The electronic tool Conference Proposals Interface (CPI) facilitates the preparation and submission of proposals from authorized membership during a Conference.
Conference Proposals Interface (CPI) user guide for PP-22: This user guide was prepared by the ITU General Secretariat for the submission of proposals, including proposed amendments to the Constitution (CS) and Convention (CV), by Member States to the forthcoming Plenipotentiary Conference (PP-22).
As soon as proposals are published, they are made available on Proposal Management Web (PMW). In PMW, proposals can be searched, sorted by document numbers, references, types of documents, etc. Proposals can be retrieved in any of the six languages, and one can look for their “inheritance”.
Proposal Management Web (PMW) user guide for PP-22: A user guide on PMW is available for reference.
Proposals should be prepared and submitted via CPI. Reference text is the Collection of basic texts of the ITU adopted by the Plenipotentiary Conference (2019 Edition). Both CPI and the Basic Texts require TIES access. The sequential numbering system should be used to identify the particular provision to which the proposal is related. In case a Member States does not want to use CPI, a PP-22 template for proposal for ease of reference can be found here.
Member States should begin their proposals with a short summary of their views on each item. This should be followed by detailed proposals, with each proposal being followed by a brief statement of the reason for the proposed change.
Symbols to be used:
The above standards of presentation should be adhered to as far as possible.
Proposals should be submitted by focal points of Administrations of ITU Member States via CPI or by e-mail to the ITU PP-22 secretariat at email@example.com. The ITU standard format is MS Word for Windows.
Processing of texts in the General Secretariat
If not yet done by the Member State, the General Secretariat will annotate the individual proposals with index numbers composed as follows:
where ABC is the symbol of the country, that is the author of the proposal (according to the Preface to the International Frequency List), 25 is the number of the document in which the proposal is published and 3 is the serial number of the proposal within that document.
The main purpose of these guidelines is to enhance the timely processing for distribution as well as coordination of proposals submitted by Member States and thus to facilitate the work of the Conference. These guidelines, if followed by Member States, will enable the secretariat at ITU headquarters to carry out its work in a more efficient and effective manner and avoid extra costs with respect to the budget of the Conference.
