Twenty-one agenda items were defined at WRC-2003. Countries often begin their preparation by compiling a list of "national concerns" related to each item on the WRC agenda. These concerns then become part of the discussions leading to either a national position statement or a proposal for WRC-2007. Resolution 63 concerns interference from industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) equipment, and calls for further studies on the limits to be imposed on ISM equipment within and outside the bands designated for its use. Since some of the ISM bands are also used by Wi-fi and other license-exempt services, any change in the noise levels allowed in these bands are relevant to the future development of unlicensed services in these bands. Resolution 952 [COM7/3] concerns Ultra Wide-band (UWB) systems. There is a need to study the issues raised by these systems, including sharing and regulatory procedures. Agenda Item 6: to identify those items requiring urgent action by the Radiocommunication Study Groups in preparation for the next world radiocommunication conference; Agenda Item 7.2: "...recommend to the Council items for inclusion in the agenda for the next WRC, and to give its views on the preliminary agenda for the subsequent conference and on possible agenda items for future conferences, taking into account [WRC-03] Resolution 803." The preparatory process for WRC-2007 is longer than previous WRCs. It will climax in a meeting late in 2006 known as CPM-06(2), at which a report to WRC-2007 will be drafted.
