The Regulation (EU) 2017/1128 on cross-border portability of online services in the internal market (portability regulation) will enter into force in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway (the EEA EFTA States) on 1 August 2019, following the fulfilment of the constitutional requirements for Joint Committee Decision (JCD) No 158/2018.
The portability regulation became applicable in the EU on 1 April 2018 and enables consumers to fully use their portable online content services (films, sports events, music services, e-books, video games, etc.) travelling within the EU in the same way they access them at home.
As of 1 August 2019, the provisions set out in the portability regulation will extend to service providers and consumers in the EEA EFTA States, as subscribed online content will become accessible in the entire European Economic Area.
