BEREC strategy 2021 - 2025

Starting: 10 Mar Ending

0 days left (ends 13 Apr)

Go to discussion, participate and give your opinion


Together with the call for contributions to the public consultation on the draft BEREC WP 2020, a first call for input to the review of the BEREC Strategy was launched on 7 November 2019. After considering the  input received from respondents the 42nd BEREC Plenary meeting approved the Draft BEREC Strategy 2021-25 for public consultation.

This latest update of BEREC’s strategy covers a period of five instead of three years, namely 2021-2025. This extended period enables better alignment with the legislative cycle of the European Commission, and the objectives and new priorities set out by President von der Leyen for the period of 2019 -2024. At the same time, the structure of the BEREC strategy is being kept so as to follow the strategic high-level priorities around connectivity, digital issues and end-users. To ensure that the BEREC strategy remains relevant and aligned with future developments, BEREC will revisit its strategic priorities over the course of the period.

The stakeholders are invited to express their views on the draft strategy 2021-25.

This early call for input is the first stage of the consultation process for the WP 2021. BEREC will consult again on its draft WP 2021 after the third BEREC Plenary of 2020 (1-2 October 2020).

Interested parties are kindly asked to send their contributions for both the BEREC Strategy 2021-25 and their early input for the BEREC WP 2021 no later than 13 April 2020 (17:00 CET) to the BEREC_Strategy_2021-2025@berec.europa.eu address or provide it here through the BEREC online consultation platform.

BEREC remains committed to continuously improving its interaction with all stakeholders to ensure that its output stays relevant. These improvements include facilitating direct engagements between the Co-Chairs of BEREC’s WGs in and around BEREC’s annual stakeholder forum. BEREC will aim to ensure its work processes remain transparent and that it reaches the relevant audience. Practices such as 2-stage consultations, which may include an early call for inputs followed by a public consultation have become established practices for BEREC. As such, stakeholders will be involved both at an early stage as well as when the work is more mature. BEREC is aware that in order to provide quality responses to BEREC’s consultations, stakeholders need sufficient time to respond. In this regard, BEREC will strive to afford stakeholders the maximum possible time to provide input to its projects.

Besides prioritising the topics and the relevant areas of cooperation for the period 2021-2025, BEREC is also looking at areas of improvement within BEREC and the BEREC Office.


The EU and its Member States have committed themselves to implementing the 2030 Agenda and contributing to the European Commission’s sustainable development goals embedded in the EU treaties.

BEREC’s work also comprises considering issues of sustainability in the BEREC Office itself in terms of BEREC’s operation as an organisation, such as the use of paper, plastic or CO2 emissions and how to reduce its impact.


BEREC and its members have successfully developed and implemented regulatory tools for non-discrimination and access remedies, transparency measures vis-à-vis end-users and portability. BEREC also has experience in balancing the objectives of promoting competition and investment, and in communicating and distilling stakeholder input regarding specific regulatory proposals.

The EECC defines a category of electronic communication services (i.e. NI-ICS) that are provided cross border simultaneously in several Member States. These services, and the emerging issues around the digital ecosystem (including platforms), may require new and enhanced cooperation among European regulators. In this regard, BEREC should assess whether its current cooperation tools are sufficient in this new environment and, if needed, explore the procedures and means to further this cooperation. BEREC will also keep sharing best regulatory practices such as data-driven regulation complementing more traditional tools like market analysis.

At the moment, analysis of the need to establish specific tools and possibly new mechanisms for regulation of the digital ecosystem, including their definition and the role of the different institutions, is at an early stage. Although there is broad agreement on the need for more specific monitoring of these types of markets, the scope and mechanisms of such monitoring are still uncertain. However, BEREC intends to contribute to the analysis of the digital ecosystem based on its own in-depth technical and sectoral expertise, and participate in the debate in different fora in order to receive input and streamline the work that lies ahead.

[6] Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) aim to transform the way that network operators design and operate networks. However, technologically as well as with regard to the alleged business impact, they appear to be approaching a phase of disillusionment and awareness that at least some of the expectations have been inflated.
