CITEL Inter-American Proposals (IAP)

CITEL IAPs are proposals with at least six administrations supporting and insufficient member states objecting (more than half the number supporting).  Competing IAPs for the same agenda item cancel each other other out, resulting in no IAP for that agenda item. 

CITEL submits these proposals to the WRC on behalf of CITEL administrations.  CITEL IAPs represent a formal regional position on the specific agenda items.
