“Procedure completed” announced OEIL electronically.
COD/2007/0248 Electronic communications: universal service, users’ rights relating to networks and services, processing of personal data, protection of privacy, consumer protection cooperation [‘Telecoms Package’ (amend. Directives 2002/22/EC, 2002/58/EC and Regulation (EC) No 2006/2004)]. Rapporteur was Malcolm Harbour.
- 76 recitals!
- The directive is unconsolidated and makes changes to three other directives or regulations.
- It is only a single element of the Telecom Package.
The telecom package pushed the European legislation process to its limits. Hopefully Kroes won’t make the same mistake as Reding and make proposals that can be easier processed and reviewed. Some stakeholders are still clouded by the fog of war. But we also have a very nice technical overview of the process.
