The Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) aims to foster and promote the independent, consistent and high-quality regulation of digital markets for the benefit of Europe and its citizens. BEREC was established by Regulation (EU) 2018/1971 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018, amending Regulation (EU) 2015/2120 and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1211 (the ‘BEREC Regulation’). The BEREC Work Programme 2022 sets out the priorities that the Board of Regulators has identified for 2022. These areas may be complemented by other emerging topics of interest during the year. The objectives of the work programme are based on the BEREC Strategy 2021-2025, with a close focus on three priorities: promoting full connectivity, supporting sustainable and open digital markets, empowering end-users. It also draws on the Medium Term Strategy for relations with other agencies. Finally, the Work Programme aims to be aligned with the priorities of the European Commission for the 2020-2024 legislative cycle and the policy objectives highlighted in the Commission’s Communication on ‘Shaping Europe's digital future’ of 19 February 2020, including the ‘Recovery Plan for Europe’ of 27 May 2020 and the Green Deal.
