On 27 February 2015, the European Commission registered a notification from the Finnish national regulatory authority, Viestintävirasto (FICORA), concerning the market for wholesale voice call termination on individual mobile networks in Finland, under case nr FI/2015/1718.

On 26 March 2015, pursuant to Article 7a of the Framework Directive (Directive 2002/21/EC), the European 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 7a of the Framework Directive, on 7 May 2015 BEREC adopted the current opinion in relation to phase II investigation pursuant to Article 7a of Directive 2002/21/EC as amended by Directive 2009/140/EC: FI/2015/1718, “Wholesale voice call termination on individual mobile networks (market 2) in Finland”.
