ore than two years aſter its proposal, the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC) has been adopted by the Council


of Telecoms Ministers. First proposed as part of the Digital Single Market strategy, the EECC is designed to modernise EU telecoms rules, stimulate competition, and strengthen the internal market and consumer rights. European Union (EU) co-legislators reached


a political agreement on these rules in June, and in November the European Parliament voted to establish the code – a directive – alongside the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC). Te formal adoption was on 4 December. Te EECC includes measures to encourage


competition and stimulate investment in very high capacity networks. Areas covered include spectrum allocation, operators’ access to networks and symmetric regulation of all


network providers in specific situations. It also covers measures to beter protect the consumer, with rules that also now apply to services provided over the internet. EU regulatory body, BEREC will contribute to the application of regulatory measures detailed in the code.

Fitori believes the EECC changes the overarching priority objective of regulation for Europe, adding a fourth objective of ‘availability and the take up of very high capacity networks’ to the three existing objectives relating to consumers, competition and the internal market, which had been in place since 2002. ‘From our perspective,’ she said, ‘this is


extremely important, because it is an investment www.fibre-systems.com @fibresystemsmag
