On 4 October, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway submitted a joint comment on a European Commission proposal to re-establish the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) to the Council.
The BEREC proposal is part of the Commission's proposal package for a revision of the telecom regulatory framework (the “Connectivity Package”).
In their comment, the EEA EFTA States especially welcome the changes proposed to the wording on the participation of third countries in BEREC.
“Whilst welcoming the Commission’s proposed changes, the EEA EFTA States encourage the European Parliament and the Council to take the same position and secure that the new BEREC Regulation lays the groundwork for satisfactory participation by the EEA EFTA States in BEREC,” the EEA EFTA States conclude in their Comment.
One of the ways in which the EEA EFTA States participate in shaping EU legislation is by submitting comments on important policy issues. A typical EEA EFTA Comment provides brief commentary and suggestions regarding Commission initiatives such as green papers or legislative proposals. The comments are endorsed by the Standing Committee of the EFTA States and officially noted by the EEA Joint Committee, after they have been sent to the relevant services in the Commission, the European Parliament and/or the Council.
