On 6 March 2013, the European Commission registered a notification from the German National Regulatory Authority BNetzA concerning the markets for call termination on individual public telephone networks provided at a fixed location in Germany under case number DE/2013/1430.

On 8 April 2013, pursuant to Article 7a(1) of the Framework Directive (Directive 2002/21/EC), the Commission informed BNetzA 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 and 7a of the Framework Directive, on the 17 May 2013 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: Case DE/2013/1430, “Call termination on individual public telephone networks provided at a fixed location in Germany”.
