This report sets out BEREC initial assessment of the need to update the CPs in the light of market, technological and regulatory developments since 2012 (when the CPs were last updated). It also draws on the findings of the implementation monitoring BEREC conducted between 2014 and 2016, which reviewed whether National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) had implemented and followed the best practices (BPs) in the CPs.In summary, the report outlines that the CPs broadly remain fit for purpose to help NRAs to design appropriate remedies for Markets 3a, 3b and 4. However, it identifies some BPs that might usefully be updated or added, to reflect changes since 2012.
