The draft BEREC Guidelines on Geographical Surveys of network deployments : Article 22 (2), 22 (3) and 22 (4) (BoR (20) 168) were approved for public consultation at the third BoR ordinary meeting of 2020.

Stakeholders were invited to submit their inputs from the 6th of October 2020 to the 5th of November 2020. Six responses from operators and operator associations were received. They all welcomed the opportunity to participate in the consultation and several of them were broadly in accordance with the Draft Guidelines. The responses argued for extending the lenght of periods allowed in the invitation procedures and expressed some concerns about the publication of forecast data. In that respect, several of them reminded BEREC that the forecast data and future plans may lack reliability, especially when forecasting periods are long and some expressed the view that the information requirements mentioned in the Guidelines could be seen as an important workload for the operators.
