Current general legal framework

The European Commission’s publication in 1987 of the Green Paper on the Development of the Common Market for Telecommunications Services and Equipment marked the start of the process of liberalisation of the telecommunications sector. The process continued with the gradual introduction of a legal framework for telecommunications comprising five main directives: the ‘Framework’, ‘Access’, ‘Authorisation’, ‘Universal Service’ and ‘Privacy’ Directives. In 2009, the Commission revised the ‘Telecoms Package’ by adopting the ‘Better Regulation’ and ‘Citizens’ Rights’ Directives and setting up the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC).
