European Commission allows Ukraine to join the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC)

On 7 June, the European Commission adopted a Decision authorising the national regulatory authority of Ukraine responsible for electronic communications to participate in BEREC, the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (‘BEREC’) and the BEREC Office, the agency supporting BEREC.

BEREC aims in particular to ensure the consistent implementation of the regulatory framework for electronic communications in the European Union and plays an important role in assisting and advising the Commission and EU national regulatory authorities on electronic communications matters, notably via its opinions and guidelines. It also advises the Commission in relation to the preparation of relevant legislative initiatives. The BEREC Office is a decentralised agency mainly supporting the work of BEREC.

In the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, both sides have committed to work together to align Ukraine’s laws with EU electronic communications laws, in which BEREC plays an important role. The Agreement promotes cooperation between Ukraine’s national regulator and the national regulators across the EU Member States.

By allowing closer cooperation and an exchange of best practices, participation of the Ukrainian national regulatory authority in the work of BEREC and the BEREC Office will also facilitate this alignment.
