The Agency for Support for BEREC (BEREC Office) is a European Union (EU) Agency supporting the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) in the fulfilment of its mission to ensure the consistent implementation of the European regulatory framework for electronic communications. To achieve this, the BEREC Office provides all necessary professional and administrative support for the work of BEREC, including financial, organisational and Information and Communications Technology services, and contributes to BEREC’s regulatory work for the benefit of citizens throughout Europe.
The guiding principles that lead us to achieve our professional objectives are as follows:
We are results-oriented and believe that by performing consistently to high standards we deliver value to our stakeholders. For us, professionalism also means transparency and integrity in all our actions, working always with the highest level of ethics in our contribution to the interests of the organisation and stakeholders.
We take pride in our work and strive for efficiency and quality in everything we do. We are committed to using the resources available in the most efficient way.
We aim to contribute to the work of BEREC with real value through tangible and evident results.
We take responsibility for our actions and their outcome, both as individuals and as a team. We honour our commitments and obligations. We are held accountable to our constituency (and the public at large) regarding the adherence to the mission, the transparency of internal processes and the execution of our mandate.
The guiding principles of our behaviour in working with our colleagues and interacting with our stakeholders:
Teamwork is the foundation of our organisation. We share knowledge and expertise, working cooperatively to achieve our goals. We foster collaboration while maintaining individual accountability.
We respect the diversity of our colleagues, the BEREC community and the EU. We understand that each individual is unique and we recognise and value the different skills and strengths of our team. We believe that diversity fosters creativity and growth, and we promote an open and respectful working environment.
The BEREC Office was established by Regulation (EU) 2018/1971 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018 establishing the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) and the Agency for Support for BEREC (BEREC Office) – the ‘BEREC Regulation’ – replacing Regulation (EC) No 1211/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2009 establishing the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) and the Office. The BEREC Office is established as a body of the EU. In the light of the BEREC Regulation, the Agency changed its name from Office to Agency for Support for BEREC. As a decentralised EU Agency, the BEREC Office maintains its legal, administrative and financial autonomy and the legal personality to exercise the powers conferred on it.
