ECTEL / Regulatory Framework / Electronic Communications Bill

Electronic Communications Bill

 

The process of replacing the Telecommunications Act in force in the ECTEL Contracting States with the new Electronic Communications Bill (EC Bill) began in 2009. The EC Bill includes, among other things, provisions to broaden the scope of regulations from telecommunications to Electronic Communications, and to address matters including but not limited to: mergers and acquisitions within the ECTEL Contracting States, preservation of an open Internet with the adoption of Net Neutrality provisions, the establishment of the NTRCs as body corporates, the setting up of a tribunal independent of the NTRC, to hear unresolved disputes between telecommunications providers and customers, and the inclusion of more penalties for breach of the legislation.
