Huh? You plainly don't understand the relationships or how standards 
work. UTC is defined by the ITU, of which the BIPM is a member, among 
others. The ITU then makes the BIPM and IERS responsible for the 
practical realization of UTC.

You're citing a internal letter, from one BIPM group to another, asking 
them to bring something before the ITU. It's not normative, it's not 
informational, it's just correspondence.
