BEREC invites stakeholders to a virtual meeting on the draft BEREC Guidelines on criteria for a consistent application of Article 61(3) EECC

18 May 2020

In order to contribute to the harmonisation of the application of symmetric access regulation, the co-legislators have entrusted BEREC to draft guidelines on criteria for a consistent application of Article 61(3) European Electronic Communications Code. The document will provide guidance to the National Regulatory Authorities on criteria to determine key aspects for the application of Article 61(3) EECC, notably the access points, new and small network deployments and high and non-transitory barriers to replication.  

During its public debriefing on 16 June, BEREC will launch the public consultation on the draft document. With a view to develop a constructive dialogue with stakeholders and to present the draft Guidelines on criteria for a consistent application of Article 61(3) EECC, BEREC invites stakeholders to a virtual meeting on 23 June 2020, at 10:30-12:30 (CEST)

The registration for the event will be open until 12 June 2020, unless we reach the maximum number of participants at an earlier date. To participate in the meeting, please register here. The dial-in data will be circulated to you prior to the meeting.

The Co-Chairs of the Fixed Network Evolution Working Group, Björn Jonassen and Wilhelm Schramm will be hosting the meeting. Participating stakeholders will have the possibility to ask questions in order to better understand the draft BEREC Guidelines on criteria for a consistent application of Article 61(3) EECC. This shall help stakeholders to prepare their contributions to the public consultation of the draft document.

According to Article 61(3) of the European Electronic Communications Code, BEREC shall issue the above-mentioned Guidelines by 21 December 2020.   The NRAs shall take these Guidelines into utmost account.
