- IARU Region 1: Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Northern Asia
- IARU Region 2: The Americas

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.
