On 2 September 2013, the Commission registered a notification by the Finnish Regulatory Authority, Viestintävirasto (FICORA), concerning the review of the wholesale markets for call termination on individual public telephone networks provided at a fixed location in Finland (market 3) under case number FI/2013/1498.On 2 October 2013, pursuant to Article 7 of the Framework Directive (Directive 2002/21/EC), the Commission informed FICORA and the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) of its reasons for considering that the draft measure would create a barrier to the internal market and communicated its serious doubts as to compatibility of the proposed measure with EU law.In that respect, as required by Article 3(1)(a) of the BEREC Regulation (Regulation (EC) № 1211/2009) and in relation with Article 7 of the Framework Directive, on 29 October 2013 BEREC adopted the current opinion in relation to phase II investigation pursuant to Article 7 of Directive 2002/21/EC as amended by Directive 2009/140/EC: Case FI/2013/1498, “Review of wholesale markets for call termination on individual public telephone networks provided at a fixed location in Finland”.
