BEREC will launch a public consultation on the draft Medium-term Strategy 2018-2020

28 February 2017

On 8 March 2017, in Brussels, BEREC will hold a public debriefing to launch a public consultation to seek early inputs to its draft Medium-term Strategy 2018-2020, inform about the outcomes of the 30th BEREC plenary meetings and give an overview of BEREC’s work in 2017.

BEREC foresees a two-step process of stakeholder engagement on the Mid-term Strategy. The first step will consist of broad and open questions to stakeholders on major market developments and how the work of BEREC is perceived. This will be launched on 8 March at the first BEREC public debriefing of 2017. After collecting the various inputs, a draft Medium-Term Strategy will be completed and a second public consultation will be conducted after the 31st BEREC plenary meetings in June. The final version of the Medium-Term Strategy is expected to be adopted in October 2017.

During the event the BEREC Chair Sebastien Soriano (ARCEP) will present the consultation document. He will also provide further information about the documents adopted at BEREC’s 30th plenary meetings (BEREC update survey on the implementation and application of the universal service provisions; Summary report on the outcomes of the Workshop on IoT technologies and their impact on regulation), give an overview of BEREC’s work in 2017 and answer questions.
