Doha, 2006), in which WTDC-06 resolves “2     to continue the development of the SF Database and provide additional guidelines and case studies, based on practical experiences of administrations”. The following guidelines, which reflect the practical experience of a number of administrations, are aimed at the setting up of a coherent fee system that takes into account: the financing of spectrum management; the budgetary and development objectives of State authorities; the objectives of efficient spectrum management and effective frequency usage.
