The European Communications Office (ECO) is the permanent Secretariat of the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT), an organisation where policy makers and regulators from 48 countries across Europe collaborate to harmonise telecommunication, radio spectrum and postal regulations.
The ECO is governed by a Council, consisting of representatives of the 32 countries contributing to the financing of the ECO. The countries are listed below and shown on the map.
At the 6th meeting of the ECO Council in London 8 - 9 May 2012, Latvia became a member of ECO Council.
The 7th meeting was held at ECO's premises 14-15 November 2012 - see photos from the meeting below:

Regrettably the Vice-Chairman of the ECO Council, Peter Pauli, was killed in an accident in June 2013. Peter was Head of Frequency Management at BAKOM/OFCOM, the Swiss regulator, and has been a senior and influential figure in frequency management in Europe for many years.
