National and International Papers

BuddeComm is involved in several international industry workgroups, covering the USA, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific Islands. These activities often involve the provision of reports to governments, sometimes informally, sometimes through official submissions. And during the process we also receive reports from other entities.

This page makes these reports available to you. We do so with the aim of serving the common good.

Feel free to use the information contained in the reports, or to pass them on to others, but we ask that if you do so you acknowledge the source.

Thank you,

Paul Budde
