International Unit

The Commission for Communication Regulation (ComReg) operates in a challenging, fast moving European and international environment which requires harmonised approaches to regulation that stimulate competitiveness so that innovation, creativity and competition can thrive.

ComReg manages and develops Irish regulatory input into the progress of European and international policy, standards, and legislation governing these sectors. It is this international liaison that provides the basis whereby the sector can develop in an open and competitive environment. Our active cooperation at international level also underpins the continued development of the communications sector in Ireland.

Regulation at international level is driven by a number of organisations. These include the:

  • European Institutions (Council, Parliament, and Commission)
  • Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC)
  • Radio Spectrum Policy Group (RSPG)
  • Independent Regulators’ Group (IRG)
  • European Conference of Postal & Telecommunications Administration (CEPT)
  • International Telecommunications Union (ITU)
  • Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)

The Commission for Communications Regulation participates in all organisations at working group and plenary level.
