The International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) is a federation of national associations of certified radio amateurs, representing over 150 countries and separate territories around the world.

The three IARU Regions are organised to broadly mirror the structure of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and its related regional telecommunications organisations. The Regions comprise:
- IARU Region 1: Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Northern Asia
- IARU Region 2: The Americas
- IARU Region 3: Asia-Pacific

The IARU represents the interests of the Amateur Radio Service worldwide to relevant international organisations, promoting the interests of amateur radio and seeking to protect and enhance its spectrum privileges.

IARU asks Member Societies to support its WRC-19 work

The World Radiocommunication Conferece, WRC 19, is just five months away and Regional Telecommunications organisations and individual countries will shortly be finalising their positions for the Conference.

IARU Region 1 has now mailed every member society providing guidance on actions which they should take with their national spectrum regulator to advocate support for the amateur service position on relevant WRC Agenda Items.
