This report summarises the responses to BEREC’s consultation on the Draft Medium Term Strategy (MTS) for 2018-2020 that ran from 7 June until 5 July 2017. BEREC’s MTS has the function of guiding its work in the medium term and serves as the blueprint for BEREC’s annual Work Programmes. The MTS was last updated in 2014, establishing three over-arching strategic objectives that follow from the policy objectives and regulatory principles that BEREC 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. 

BEREC is reviewing its MTS to make sure that its work stays relevant in relation to major developments in the digital ecosystem and this year’s update will establish a strategy for the period 2018-2020 based on BEREC’s mandate and on the input provided by stakeholders.To this end, BEREC launched an initial consultation on 8 March, running until 5 April, in which it sought input from stakeholders on how BEREC’s work is perceived and on which market developments will be important for BEREC to consider in its MTS for the period 2018-2020. Following this, BEREC conducted a second consultation on the updated draft MTS, which ran from 7 June until 5 July 2017.[1] BoR (14) 182, BEREC Strategy 2015-2017, 4 December 2014.
