The APT has considered the studies on WRC-19 Document 550 but has not developed any APT Common Proposal on the matter. However, the APT has agreed on the following views:
- APT Members are of the view that possible and practical alternative approaches/solutions merit to be considered.
- APT Members are of the view that appropriate regulatory provisions/measures for the operation of terrestrial IMT and space services and their future development in a balanced and fair manner are necessary.
- APT Members are of the view that change to RR No. 21.5 may not be necessary at this stage to address the issues raised in Document 550 of WRC-19.
