Update on the Transposition of the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC)

Following the update from the Department of Environment, Climate and Communications on 22 December 2021, ComReg understands that the Code transposition into national law will be delayed.  The Department have announced that primary and secondary legislation will give effect to the transposition of the EECC, specifically in the forthcoming ‘European Union (Electronic Communications Code) Regulations, 2022 and the Communications Regulation (Enforcement) Bill, 2022’.

ComReg reiterates for the avoidance of doubt, electronic communications providers must continue to comply with their obligations, ComReg will continue to regulate the electronic communications sector under its existing powers, and redress mechanisms for customers will continue unchanged until new legislation is introduced.

 

*Further detail:

The Communications Regulation Act 2002 continues in force (without further change/amendment).

The suite of 2011 Electronic Communications Regulations continue in force until further legislation is introduced, which amends or repeals them.

The suite of 2011 Electronic Communications Regulations is composed of the following:

  • The European Communities (Electronic Communications Networks and Services) (Framework) Regulations 2011, S.I. No. 333 of 2011
  • The European Communities (Electronic Communications Networks and Services) (Access) Regulations 2011, S.I. No. 334 of 2011
  • The European Communities (Electronic Communications Networks and Services) (Authorisation) Regulations 2011, S.I. No. 335 of 2011
  • The European Communities (Electronic Communications Networks and Services) (Universal Service and End User Rights) Regulations 2011, S.I. No. 337 of 2011
  • The European Communities (Electronic Communications Networks and Services) (Privacy and Electronic Communications) Regulations 2011, S.I. No. 336 of 2011

The Department’s communications in relation to the Code can be found at its website, here: gov.ie – European Electronic Communications Code (EECC)
