Following analysis undertaken first by the ERG (European Regulators Group) and then by the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC), BEREC has raised concerns that the current inconsistent implementation of regulation across Europe is leading to inefficiencies for providers of electronic communications services to business, which is potentially hindering competitive dynamics and the completion of the internal market.

To complement its previous analysis, BEREC has now launched a call for contributions in order to examine legal and administrative barriers in relation to the provision of electronic communications services for the business segment. Further, BEREC have outlined their intention to carry out a survey and analysis of existing restrictions. The contributions from stakeholders on any inefficiencies experienced under the current national administrative regimes will form part of that analysis. Responses have been requested by 5 August 2011.
