SMP, antimonopoly regulatory powers defined in law

11 Jun 2012

Ukraine’s parliament has adopted legislation which more clearly defines the powers and obligations of the state telecoms regulator, the National Commission on Communications and Information Regulation (NKRZI or NCCR) and the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine (AMCU or AMKU). In particular the NKRZI’s responsibilities to define telecoms companies as having significant market power (SMP) in any given market are now set in law, Telecompaper reports. A presidential decree in November 2011 restructured the NKRZI to widen its remit in the ICT sector (decree No. 1067/2011 of 23 November – Law of Ukraine On Telecommunications) and approve its regulatory powers over telecoms, information services, radio frequency resources and postal services. In a further decree on 16 December President Viktor Yanukovych appointed a new staff line-up for the regulator.
