OCECPR launches consultation on proposed amendments to telecoms law

25 Mar 2014

Cypriot telecoms watchdog, the Office of the Commissioner of Electronic Communications & Postal Regulation (OCECPR) has launched a public consultation on proposed amendments to the Regulation of Electronic Communications and Postal Services Law of April 2004, with regards to the possible alteration of the scope of the country’s universal service obligations. According to a press release, the proposed amendments are ‘considered necessary for [the] purposes of legislative uniformity’. The draft document is available on the regulator’s website, and all interested parties are invited to submit their comments by 4 April 2014.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, OCECPR launched a previous consultation on the topic in January 2014, in order to determine whether the unavailability of universal services is likely to lead to social exclusion, and if the availability and use of specific services conveys a general net benefit for all consumers.
