ComReg is the statutory body responsible for the regulation of the electronic communications sector (telecommunications, radio communications, broadcasting transmission and premium rate services) and the postal sector in Ireland. This includes a function in licensing use of the radio spectrum in Ireland.

We have a wide range of responsibilities in telecommunications (or electronic communications services and networks as it is more accurately described), postal and spectrum management. We operate under Irish and EU legislation in these areas.

We are responsible for facilitating competition, for protecting consumers and for encouraging innovation. Our role involves dealing with complex issues of law, economics and technology, and ensuring that our decisions are taken fairly and are clearly explained. Our powers include the ability to prosecute for certain criminal offences that are specified under the legislation which we regulate.

ComReg has appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) to oversee our compliance with data protection rules. More information about our DPO, including contact details, is provided here.
