Overview of the Radio Regulations

 Rights and obligations of Administrations and applicable procedures are contained in the Radio Regulations (RR). These Regulations are binding a very fundamental international treaties setting out the allocation of frequency bands to different radio services; technical parameters to be respected by radio stations; procedures for the notification and international coordination of specific frequencies assigned to the stations by Administrations; and other procedures or operational provisions. The Radio Regulations are vital to the modern world, for if radio services are to operate efficiently worldwide (no harmful interference), frequency assignments must respect the prescribed allocations, technical requirements and operational procedures.

Note: If, in the text of definitions below, a term is printed in italics, this means that the term itself is defined in the Radio Regulations.
