This Command Paper provides an overview of the Post Implementation Review (PIR) of the UK’s implementation of revisions to the EU Electronic Communications Framework, which took place in May 2011. The revisions, which were agreed by the EU in 2009, were transposed into UK legislation using four negative resolution statutory instruments:
The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) 2011
The Electronic Communications (Universal Services) Amendment (Order 2011)
The Electronic Communications and Wireless Telegraphy Regulations 2011
The Communications Act 2003 (Maximum Penalty for Contravention of Information Requirements) Order 2011
The Framework establishes the rules which govern the European telecommunications sector, and is subject to five-yearly reviews of its fitness for purpose. These reviews include negotiation of updates and revision as necessary.
