Reinforcing the Commission's Power in the Communications Sector. An Issue for the Regulatory Framework Review

Listed author(s):

Registered author(s):

    The reform of the regulatory framework for electronic communications is in progress. One of its major issue could be an institutional one, as the European Commission announced its intention to reinforce its own power, in particular in order to supervise the remedies imposed by national regulators to the dominant operators. Highlighting the importance of the objective of consolidation of the Internal Market, this article examines the case for this reinforcement and analyzes the institutional architecture which endorses it. Even if the proposal to create a European Electronic Communications Authority constitutes an event, the issue of the reinforcement of the Commissions's power should not be considered in the sole light of this project which could be rejected or amended.
