ANFR prepares, coordinates and supports French positions in international forums. National frequency management has to take into account advanced international regulation and the increasing influence of the European Commission on policy and harmonisation. Thus there is a need to have a comprehensive management of frequencies, in order to prevent interferences and ensure public interest and an equal share of resource.
Technical contributions and positions are worked out in close collaboration with relevant administrations and industry’s’ representatives. ANFR is supported by various committees, working groups and uses large mailing lists to consult widely. There is thus an ongoing consultation process which allows to adapt positions and negotiation strategies in time.
ANFR produces its analysis and supports it in international negotiating and consulting bodies.
