According to Article 4 (3) and Article 8 (6) of Regulation (EU) 2022/612 (hereafter “Regulation”), BEREC shall update its Retail Roaming Guidelines in close cooperation with the Commission and consult with stakeholders for the purpose of ensuring the consistent application of the provisions. These revised BEREC Retail Roaming Guidelines are designed to explain the Regulation, including the Commission Implementing Regulation laying down detailed rules on the application of a “fair use policy” (FUP), on the methodology for assessing the sustainability of the abolition of retail roaming surcharges and on the application to be submitted by a roaming provider for the purposes of that assessment. These Guidelines replace the BEREC Guidelines published in 2017 (BoR (17) 56). 

This report summarises the responses sent by stakeholders to the public consultation on the Retail Roaming Guidelines. The BEREC public consultation was open from 10 June to 9 August 2022.
