On 24 August 2012 the Autoritatea Naţională pentru Administrare şi Reglementare în Comunicaţii (National Authority for Administration and Regulation in Communications - ANCOM), the Romanian telecom regulator, opened a public consultation on a draft Decision on reviewing the general authorisation regime for electronic communications providers (see IRIS 2010-8/43, IRIS 2011-2/35, IRIS 2011-4/32, and IRIS 2012-4/37).

The draft Decision aims to amend and complete the ANCOM President’s Decision no. 338/2010 in order to transpose into the secondary legislation the provisions of the new legal framework for electronic communications, as well as to correct some weak points of the above-mentioned Decision. The most important amendments and modifications focus on the security and integrity of electronic communications networks and services, the provision of emergency electronic communications services, the terms of use for numbering resources, the technical conditions which apply for the retransmission of audiovisual programme services, and the content of the description form for networks and services.

The draft Decision proposes a set of technical parameters for the electronic communications networks used for the retransmission of audiovisual programme services, with a view to setting the conditions for a protection framework for end-users’ interests in their relationship with the service providers. The parameters are linked to the general security conditions and the electromagnetic compatibility: the distribution systems through electronic communications networks have to be conceived, built and installed according to the relevant provisions with regard to the general security conditions and the electromagnetic compatibility adopted by the national standardisation body; the active and passive equipments used for the reception, processing and distribution of signals through electronic communications networks have to observe the provisions of the Government Decree no. 982/2007 with regard to the electromagnetic compatibility.

The consultation closed on 7 October 2012.
