This month marks the first anniversary of the transposition deadline of the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC).
By 20 December 2020, EU member states had to adjust their national laws in accordance with the Code, two years after its entry into force.
Since the adoption of the EECC, the European Commission and BEREC, the assembly of European telecoms NRAs, have issued additional regulations and guidelines to ensure the harmonised application of the EU telecoms rules across the member states.
This EECC implementation calendar takes stock of the work done so for and looks ahead at the next steps. The EECC sets the deadline for the first part of the review cycle at the end of 2021, starting with BEREC opinions on the functioning of the general authorisation regime and the end-user rights provisions.
The coming years promise to be as interesting as the previous ones. BEREC will seek to update its guidelines on very high capacity networks (VHCN), the Commission will set requirements on public warning systems, member states will report on their experiences with the regime for the deployment of small cells. And already by the end of 2025, the Commission has to review the entire EECC.
This calendar will give you a thorough overview of what to expect until then.
