Insights Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) announces early call for input on the BEREC Work Programme 2023

During the BEREC Public debriefing on the outcomes of the 50th BEREC ordinary meetings held on 16 March 2021, the incoming BEREC Chair 2023 Kostas Masselos (EETT, Greece) announced an early call for input on the BEREC Work Programme 2023.

Earlier this year, BEREC adopted the Outline BEREC Work Programme 2023, which sets out the objectives of BEREC’s work for next year, which continue to be based on the mandatory requirements of the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC) and the four main goals in Article 3 (2):

  • promoting connectivity and access to very high-capacity networks;
  • promoting competition and efficient investment;
  • contributing to the development of the internal market; and
  • promoting the interests of the citizens of the Union.

BEREC says that consistently implementing the EECC continues to be at the forefront of its work. The BEREC Strategy 2021-2025 will be fundamental to meeting BEREC’s objectives in 2023. Further, BEREC says that it is committed to serving as a body for thoughtful and proactive debate that provides advice to the European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission in the field of electronic communications. Similarly, BEREC seeks to engage cooperatively and effectively with stakeholders.

The Outline Work Programme 2023 also considers that preparation for future challenges arising from political, economic and technological developments is an essential task, e.g., ensuring sustainable and resilient networks and services.

The incoming BEREC Chair encourages all stakeholders and interested parties to provide their views and contributions to the Work Programme 2023 by 15 April 2022. To access the Outline BEREC Work Programme 2023 and for information on how to provide input, click here.
