In 2017 BEREC is set to review its current Medium-Term Strategy (MTS) to make sure that its work stays relevant in relation to major developments in the digital ecosystem. The BEREC MTS has the function of guiding BEREC´s work in the medium term and it serves as the blue print for BEREC´s annual work programs. The MTS was last updated in 2014 establishing three overarching strategic objectives that follow from the policy objectives and regulatory principles that its members apply in accordance with Article 8 in the Framework Directive Promoting competition and investment Promoting the internal market and Empowering and protecting end-users. In this year´s update of the MTS BEREC will seek to establish a strategy for the period 2018-2020 and invite stakeholders to take an active role in this process. To this end BEREC is seeking input from stakeholders at the earliest stage possible on how BEREC work is perceived and what market developments will be important for BEREC to consider in its MTS for the period 2018-2020. In Section 1 of this consultation BEREC seeks open input on what market and technological developments could influence the new strategy while also seeking answers to questions on more specific areas such as on end-user quality competitive dynamics in digital markets and evolving networks. In Section 2 BEREC is seeking answers to questions relating to how BEREC works with its current objectives and how stakeholder engagements could be improved.
