EU sets up telecom policy advisory groups

The European Commission has set up two advisory groups to help it steer telecoms policy making for the 15-member countries.

A European regulators group comprising national telecom regulators and Commission officials will oversee the implementation of the latest package of EU telecoms laws which take effect from next year.

A radio spectrum policy group made up of telecoms industry executives, as well as national and EU-wide regulators, will focus on the specific issues raised by the growing demand for wireless networks. Radio spectrum corresponds to radio waves, which allow, for example, the transmission of mobile and fixed wireless communications.

"Demand for the use of radio spectrum is increasing as is the contribution to the EU's economy of radio spectrum-based services," said Erkki Liikanen, commissioner for enterprise and the information society. "With the European Regulators Group, we will have a means of ensuring consistent application of the recently adopted rules for electronic communications services throughout the EU."

The groups will hold their first meetings after the summer break, the Commission said.
