    EC Framework Review Proposals Published

    The EC has published the new proposals for a revised Framework Directive which sets out the framework for European Telecommunications regulation and would replace the 2002 Framework. Lots of detail to go through here, but there is apparently no major strategic shift in the proposals.

    Of note: no EC retreat following Ed Richards robust objection to the proposed single telecoms authority for Europe. Commissioner Reding sets out some detail of the proposed 'European Telecom Market Authority', making it clear that the Commission position is that the proposed authority will work alongside the existing national regulators. I will ask him more about this at a public event at LSE next week.

    Now the proposals go into the co-decision procedure: they will be debated by the European Council and Parliament and we can expect to see some vigorous lobbying from national regulators.
