The World Radiocommunication Conference 2015 (WRC-15) has been held by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) at Geneva, Switzerland during the period 2-27 November 2015, WRCs are held every three to four years to review the regulatory framework for international spectrum management and satellite coordination. This framework is contained in the treaty level Radio Regulations.

Qatar is a signatory to the ITU Convention, which is a treaty-level legal instrument that obliges Qatar to comply with the Radio Regulations.
