The new EU Telecoms Package (5 Directives in total) adopted in 2009 will be transposed into the Czech legal system by way of an amendment to the existing Act No. 127/2005 Coll., on Electronic Communications. The new single amendment (Bill) shall encompass all key issues addressed by the revised Telecoms Package. The amended Act will also specifically address certain questions in relation to e-privacy and data protection, as well as consumer protection and certain competition issues (e.g. free frequencies granted by way of auctions, allowing new services providers to enter the market).
The implementation process is expected to be completed by the end of 2011 and the amendment is expected to come into force at the beginning of 2012.
