RA Seek Feedback: Electronic Communications

July 28, 2022

The Regulatory Authority [RA] is inviting the public to comment on its sectoral review of the electronic communications sector.

A spokesperson said, “As required by section 17 of the Regulatory Authority Act 2011 [RAA], the Regulatory Authority of Bermuda [the RA] is inviting the public, electronic communications sectoral participants, sectoral providers, and other interested parties to comment on its sectoral review of the electronic communications sector, which includes all applicable policies, legislation, regulations, and administrative determinations.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Sectoral Review is separate from the process relating to the market review of the EC Sector [Market Review] required under part 4 of the Electronic Communication Act 2011 [ECA].

“It is important to note that all submissions will require a ‘declaration of interest’, which must include the name, address, and occupation of the commenting party. It must also be signed by the individual, in the case of a personal submission, or by an authorised representative of any business.

“Personal submissions must declare any relevant link to a licensed or government body, whether commercial or personal [i.e., family, etc.]. Where a business is not a licensed carrier, any business’s submission must declare commercial relationships to any licensed operator. Failure to declare an interest that is subsequently identified will lead to the rejection of the submission.

“At the conclusion of the public consultation process, the RA will issue a Final Decision.

“To review the sectoral review and provide your feedback, please see Sectoral Review on the RA’s website and submit your response on or before 11:59 PM [Bermuda time] on 31 August 2022.”
