The joint committee between the National Frequency Agency (ANFR-France) and ANRT held its 7th annual meeting in late September in Paris. Both parties have renewed their cooperation agreement for another five-year period.
This bilateral cooperation addresses openness towards Francophone African countries by organizing preparatory meetings for conferences on radiocommunications and seminars on managing and controlling the spectrum to the benefit of these countries.
Other topics discussed included the digital dividend and digital terrestrial television as well as public exposure to electromagnetic fields.
ANFR and ANRT also discussed the organization of several workshops and working visits for the benefit of managers from both Agencies. These courses focus primarily on new approaches to frequency management to account for the spread of new digital technologies.
