The CNMC has published the Report on the Royal Decree that affects telecommunications' physical infrastructures The Spanish National Market and Competition Commission (CNMC) has recently published the Report on the Royal Decree regulating access to physical infrastructures that can accommodate high-speed electronic communications networks, the coordination of civil works and the publication of information on issuance of permits. Such Royal Decree, which will transpose Directive 2014/61/EU, seeks to primarily establish legal measures in order to bring down the costs of highspeed electronic communications networks' deployment. Though the Report has been positive, some additional measures such as the following were proposed by the CNMC: • To clarify the elements to be taken into consideration by the economic agents to negotiate the prices of access to those infrastructures that already exist. • To provide centralized information about physical infrastructures through tools which facilitate information access. • To define the parameters by which the owners of physical infrastructures can deny access to information by operators willing to plan their corresponding deployments. • To increase obligations with respect to civil works as well as transparency in all kinds of works. • To foresee that the issuance of permits and licenses required to deploy infrastructures can be managed from one information point, in a centralized manner.
