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 draft BEREC Work Programme 2024 sets out the priorities that the Board of Regulators has identified for 2024. These areas may be complemented by other emerging topics of interest during the year.

The objectives of this 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, and empowering end-users. It also draws on the Medium-Term Strategy for relations with other institutions. The Work Programme 2024 aims to be aligned with the priorities of the European Commission for the 2020-2024 legislative cycle as well as the vision, targets and avenues for Europe’s digital transformation by 2030, set in the Digital Compass and the Policy Programme “Path to the Digital Decade”. Finally, BEREC has recently published an Action Plan for 2030, that shows how BEREC can contribute to a regulatory environment in Europe that will be fit for the digital age and the global context. The work programme is well aligned with the strategic priorities set out in the action plan.
