Overview

Morocco (المَغرِب / Maroc), officially known as the Kingdom of Morocco, is a sovereign country located in the Maghreb region of North Africa.  It is bordered by Spain to the north (a water border through the Strait and land borders with three small Spanish-controlled exclaves, Ceuta, Melilla, and Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera), Algeria to the east, and the disputed territory of Western Sahara to the south. Since Morocco controls most of Western Sahara, its de facto southern boundary is with Mauritania.

Morocco is a member of the ITU and as such follows radio frequency harmonisation principles according to ITU-R Region-1. The regulatory body governing communications policy is the Direction de l'Economie Numérique, and the Agence Nationale de Réglementation des Télécommunications (ANRT) is charged with regulating the country's radio frequency spectrum activities such as planning, allocations, and licencing.
