New General Authorization Database hosted by BEREC
15 February 2021
The EU co-legislators have assigned the Body of the European Regulators for Electronic Communications to establish and maintain a database of notifications transmitted to the competent authorities by undertakings subject to general authorisation. All the notifications received before 21 December 2020 shall be forwarded to BEREC by 21 December 2021. Find the database here.
In the required notifications, the providers of the electronic communications networks and services shall include necessary information on the company, i.e. the name, legal status, geographical address, website address, the description of networks or services intended to offer and the estimated date for starting the activity.
The establishment of such database is foreseen in the European Electronic Communications Code. For entering the electronic communications market, the providers of the electronic communications networks and services shall submit a declaratory notification without bearing any administrative costs. In the Code, it is outlined, that such statement could be made available via a single entry point, e.g., the database, at the competent authorities' website, where applicable, associated with the provision of electronic communications networks or services. Moreover, the Member States shall not impose any additional or separate notification requirements.
