Service deregulation reviews

The Commission can investigate regulating new wholesale telecommunications services or making changes to existing regulated services. It has to investigate, every 5 years, whether existing services can be deregulated.

After completing an investigation the Commission makes recommendations. If any changes to regulatory provisions are proposed, these have to be accepted by the relevant government Minister and then implemented.

The final reports of the most recent completed reviews are listed below. Consultation documents and older reviews can be found in the Telecommunications Archive.
