Date of proposal

TS/TR (or functionality) to be withdrawn


TSG meeting at which decision will be taken


2019-03-18 TS 24.323 from Releases 11, 12 and 13

TSG CT meeting #83 approved in principle the withdrawal of TS 24.323 from Releases 11, 12 and 13. The rationale will be prepared in a special work item currently being drafted by Vodafone. The procedures of TR 21.900 clause 4.9B apply.
The withdrawal WID can be found in CP-191151 to CT#84.

TSG CT#84 Withdrawal approved.


TS 44.118, TS 44.160
from Rel-12 onwards

Specs relate to Iu mode in GERAN, not supported after Rel-11. Note that there are very many references to these specs from other specs, so a very large number of CRs will need to be produced and approved before these specs can be withdrawn.




TR 38.900

Frequency range of interest has been extended, and this TS is superseded by TR 38.901. A reference check has been undertaken, and necessary CRs will be raised as appropriate. The FS_NR_newRAT WID will be revised to indicate the withdrawal of 38.900.

Update 2017-04-26: Subsequent discussions indicate that withdrawal is not required, but that the TR will not be promoted to Rel-15. If any references to 38.900 are required from Rel-15 specs, these will have to be explicitly to the latest Rel-14 version.


 No withdrawal
