The CNMC initiates disciplinary proceedings against an operator for irregularities in numeration On 26 November 2015, the Spanish National Market and Competition Commission (CNMC) decided to start disciplinary proceedings against a telecom operator for the alleged failure to comply with the numeration usage rights. In particular, the operator's activity has been alleged to be non-compliant with the obligation to control its numeration, as provided in the Regulation of markets, access and numeration. The CNMC decision to initiate disciplinary proceedings derives from prior complaints by other two operators, which had warned about interconnection conflicts from irregularities in their network traffic due to the operator's failure to control its numeration. According to the CNMC, the non-compliance with the obligation to control the corresponding numeration by the operator may constitute a "serious administrative infringement" by virtue of the Spanish Telecommunication General Law. A period of twelve months is now open to commence an investigation after which a final resolution is expected to be published.
