The five Regional Internet Registries contributed views in response to 
the ITU’s public consultation in preparation of the World Conference on 
International Telecommunications (WCIT) to be held in Dubai in December 
2012, where the International Telecommunications Regulations (ITRs) will 
be reviewed.

The five RIRs supported the continuance of the ITRs to guide and promote 
the growth of international Internet connectivity. In their collective 
submission sent to the ITU, the RIRs stated that while they share many 
of the concerns expressed by the ITU Member States in the fields of 
interconnection costs, security, spam, and issues relating to Internet 
resources, they don’t believe that some of the proposed new ITR 
provisions can effectively help to solve these matters. Instead, the 
letter says that “many will carry unintended consequences: the ITRs will 
remain unchanged for many years after WCIT, while most of the issues of 
concern will change as technologies will evolve.”
