WTSA-08 Action Plan (TD 18/TSAG)
WTSA-08 Resolution 76 (famous as the Resolution
on the ITU mark)

(1) - These include the least developed
countries, small island developing states and
countries with economies in transition.
  • Ability of a product to meet the requirement(s)
    of a standard

Ability of two or more systems or applications
or network management products and services from
different suppliers to exchange information and
to mutually / fruitfully make use of it
WTSA-08 Resolution 76
  • resolves
  • 1 that ITU-T Study Groups develop the necessary
    conformance testing ITU-T Recommendations for
    telecommunications equipment asap
  • 2 that ITU-T Recommendations to address
    interoperability testing shall be progressed
  • 3 that ITU-T in collaboration with the other
    Sectors as appropriate, shall develop a program
  • assist developing countries in capacity-building
    and training opportunities in conformity and
    interoperability testing
  • assist developing countries in establishing
    regional or sub-regional centres suitable to
    perform conformity and interoperability testing
    as appropriate

WTSA-08 Resolution 76
  • 4 that conformance and interoperability testing
    requirements shall provide for verification of
    the parameters defined in the current and future
    ITU-T Recommendations
  • instructs the Director of the Telecommunication
    Standardization Bureau

1 in cooperation with the BR BDT, to conduct
exploratory activities in each region to identify
and prioritizing the problem faced by developing
countries related to achieving interoperability
of ICT equipment and services
  • 2 based on results of instructs the Director of
    TSB 1 above, to study the items below
  • a) the overall effect on ITU and manufacturers
  • b) legal and national and international
    regulatory implications
  • c) cost of set up of facility
  • d) location of testing facility
  • e) measures to be taken to build the necessary
    human resource capacities

WTSA-08 Resolution 76
  • 3 to carry out the necessary studies with the
    view to introduce the use of ITU Mark as a
    voluntary program permitting manufacturers and
    service providers to make a visible declaration
    that their equipment conform to ITU-T
    Recommendations, and to increase the probability
    of interoperability and to consider its possible
    application as an indication of a degree of
    interoperability capability in the future
  • 4 to study the financial and legal implications
    for the ITU-T and ICT industries, and all other
    concerns raised with regard to this proposal
    regarding the possible introduction of the ITU-T
  • 5 to involve experts and external entities as
  • 6 to submit the result of these studies to
    Council-09 for its consideration and required

WTSA-08 Resolution 76
  • instructs the study groups
  • 1 to identify as soon as possible those existing
    and future ITU-T Recommendations candidates for
    interoperability tests e.g. interoperability of
    NGN equipment, terminals, audio video codecs,
    access and transport network that are capable of
    providing end-to-end interoperable services on a
    global scale
  • 2 to prepare those ITU-T Recommendations with a
    view to conducting conformity and
    interoperability tests as appropriate
  • invites the Council
  • 1 to consider the report of the TSB Director
  • 2 to report as appropriate on this matter to the
    2010 Plenipotentiary Conference taking into
    account Resolution 158 (Antalya, 2006) Financial
    issues for consideration by the Council
  • invites Member States and Sector Members
  • 1 to contribute to the implementation of this
  • 2 to encourage national and regional testing
    entities to assist
  • ITU-T in implementing this Resolution.

  • In June 2008, the 7th meeting of the World
    Standards Cooperation (WSC) recognized that
  • global conformity assessment the accepted way
    of demonstrating that a product or service
    adheres to an International Standard, and its
    increasing importance in the context of the
    commitments of WTO Member States under the TBT
  • The promotion of standardization and conformity
    assessment was seen as facilitating global trade
    and providing tangible benefits to users of both
    standards and conformity assessment.

ISO/CASCO (ITU-T A liaison org.)
  • ISO/CASCO is ISO's policy development committee
    on conformity assessment preparing documents
    concerning the practice and operation of
    conformity assessment, and to promote their use.
  • Study means of assessing the conformity of
    products, processes, services and management
    systems to standards
  • Prepare standards and guides relating to the
    practice of testing, inspection and certification
    of products, processes and services, and to the
    assessment of management systems, testing
    laboratories, inspection, certification and
    accreditation bodies, and their operation and
    acceptance (Toolkit including ISO 17007 - 17011
    - 17025 17050 17065 )
  • Promote mutual recognition and acceptance of
    national and regional conformity assessment

Some reasons WHY Res. 76 exists
  • A number of Member States, Sector Members and
    end-users have reported problems with an increase
    in the supply of poor quality and even dangerous
    equipment, not interoperable of which a
    proportion has proved to be counterfeit or to
    have been illegally imported.
  • Some Governments lack effective systems to ensure
    that appropriate technical regulations, based on
    international standards, are in place and
    enforced in order to meet their obligations to
    protect the safety of their citizens using
    telecommunications equipment and services and to
    meet their requirements for quality of service.

Some results from the studies_1
  • Need of testing for conformity assessment and
    interoperability in a Certified/Accredited
    voluntary programme to demonstrate compliance of
    products to standards
  • Need to establish reciprocal international
    recognition of laboratories and certifiers to
    reduce costs of multiple repeated testing and
    creation of barriers to trade (ILAC, IAF) two or
    more partners recognizes respective laboratories
    to have equivalent competence to carry out the
    same conformity assessment tasks.
  • Industry reaction? Massively involved (WiFi
    Alliance, WiMAX , IEEE-ICAP, ) in certification
    and interoperability testing

Some results from the studies_2
  • Positive impact on
  • ITU (Recomm, ITU mission, Promo Recs)
  • Industry (costs, widen market ? MRAs, no TBT
  • End Users (Regulators, QoS, interoperability)
  • Developing Countries (capacity building
    opportunities, labs, stand. Gap, testing culture)
  • Need to allocate budget and human resources to
    fully implement the programme (resolves and

Some fundamental elements
  • The vendors decision for testing is voluntary
  • Tests in1st, 2nd, 3rd party labs
  • Role of a independent Accredited Certifier
  • Possible accreditation by a National
    Accreditation Body (NAB) , ensuring that they
    comply with specific requirements for independent
    activities (ISO).
  • Possible affiliation to ILAC / IAF for MRAs and
    MLAs (Mutual Recognition or Multi Lateral
  • Certification of Conformity always conducted by
    an accredited third party entity
  • A Suppliers Declaration of conformity issued by
    an executive expressly designated by the vendor
    that, after e.g. 1st or 3rd party testing) ,
    according to ISO 17050

ITU conformity programme
  • Encourage and assist for Conformity Assessement
    and Interoperability Testing Developing Countries
    laboratories and capacity building opportunities
  • Encourage vendors to carry out conformity
    assessment and interoperability testing
  • Develop and operate a voluntary ITU Conformity
    Mark scheme to
  • enable vendors to make reference and/or to give
    visibility to ITU when conformity and, when
    possible, inter-operability requirements have
    been demonstrated in the context of the scheme
  • to stimulate and develop the culture of the need
    of conformance assessment testing, capacity
    building, surveillance worldwide

The Vendor
  • A vendor who receives a certificate issued by an
    accredited certifier indicating its equipment has
    been tested to show conformity or
    interoperability to ITU-T Recommendation(s), or
    provides a declaration by a high ranking
    executive of the company to that effect, may
    request ITU to acknowledge the availability of
    the certification or declaration and permit the
    visible recognition by means of an ITU Conformity

The ITU conformity mark scheme ITU (inside)
  • a scheme relying on accredited testing and
    certification. Accreditation will provide
    confidence in the results of the conformity
    assessment process.
  • The accreditation filter
  • route 1 Accredited laboratory and Suppliers
  • route 2 testing performed under the
    responsibility of an accredited certifier

Suppliers declaration, When?
  • risk associated with non compliance is low and
    penalties for placing noncompliant products on
    the market are affordable, and
  • removal efforts from the market of noncompliant
    products is adequate.

3rd Party Certification, when?
  • Certification is always conducted by a third
    party and is adopted if the risks associated with
    non-conformity are from moderate to high
  • Certification includes evaluation of test results
    and the attestation of the compliance to referred
  • Conformity and Certification to foresee a sort of
    in-factory / market/ periodical form of
    surveillance to ensure ongoing conformity
