Space News has the false notion that ITU has regulatory authority.  It has none.  All authority remains with ITU Member states.  ITU functions entirely within the International Telecommunication Convention and annexed radio regulations.

Basic ITU documents are online for free download.  Radio Regulations are available here: http://www.itu.int/pub/R-REG-RR/en.  Suggest reading Articles 9 and 11 on coordination and notification.  Also, read Resolution 757, which is an effort to simplify the administrative procedure for small, short life projects, and Resolution 646, which applies to some amateur-satellite service stations.
