Spectrum and Regulatory Liaison Committee (SARLC)

The SARLC, although termed a “Committee” is in fact a group of individual experts who are personally involved in work for IARU in relations with regulatory and standards or-ganisations. Individually and collectively, under the leadership of the Chair of the SARLC, they establish the policy and strategic direction IARU Region 1 should take in the Inter-national Telecommunication Union (ITU) and in Region 1, Regional and Sub-Regional Telecommunication Organisations (RTOs) e.g. ASMG (Arab Spectrum Management Group), ATU (African Telecommunication Union), CEPT (Conférence Européenne des administrations des Postes et Télécommunications) and RCC (Regional Commonwealth in the field of Communications) on matters of importance to the interests of the Amateur Services (e.g. spectrum management, licensing and spectrum engineering). The Chair identifies and commissions Region 1 experts to represent IARU at meetings/conferences of these organisations in accordance with the Terms of Reference and objectives.
