Tracking the changes between 1988 and 2012 ITRs

WCIT-12 may have ended, but now begins the work of analysing how the ITR changes will have an effect on international telecommunications.

To help those wishing to do that analysis, below is a PDF that shows exactly what has changed, in the English versions, between the 1988 text and 2012 text of the International Telecommunication Regulations. Article 7, Suspension of services, is the least-changed of all the provisions in the ITRs. All other provisions have a significant number of text changes.

17 December 2012 update: In tidying up the slightly weird way Word had performed the “compare documents” function, I inadvertently included some text twice in deleted item 45, section 6.1.3. The PDF linked below contains the updated, amended version.

  3. This is great: I hadn’t realised Section 7 had been around in exactly that form in the earlier ITRs (though I should have checked).
