On 2 January 2014, the Commission registered a notification by the Latvian Regulatory Authority, Sabiedrisko Pakalpojumu RegulÄ“šanas Komisija (SPRK), concerning remedies in the markets for fixed call termination in Latvia (market 3) under case number LV/2014/1538.

On 3 February 2014, pursuant to Article 7a of the Framework Directive (Directive 2002/21/EC), the Commission informed SPRK 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) â„– 1211/2009) and in relation with Article 7a of the Framework Directive, on 14 March 2014 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 LV/2014/1538, “Remedies in the markets for fixed call termination in Latvia”.
