After having thoroughly taken in consideration stakeholders’ feedback, TRA Board Members approved the Service Provider Licensing Draft Regulation on 27/4/2009. This Draft Regulation was submitted to the Minister of Telecommunications for submittal to the State Council for opinion.
The Service Provider licensing draft regulation includes clarifications related to the Authority’s actions in regard to licensing service providers and the treatment of their licenses. This document details the types and classification of licenses to be granted by the TRA. It also reviews the conditions under which each license will be delivered as well as the issuing process.
The licensing draft regulation also encompasses and tackles crucial issues such as:
- The application process for licenses
- The validity period of each type of license
- The conditions applicable to licenses
- The amendment of licenses
- The revocation, suspension and termination of licenses
- The renewal of licenses
The licensing draft regulation defines a broader scope for each type of license. It also provides service providers with a customized framework that is adapted to their needs. Once issued in the Official Gazette, this draft regulation will enter into effect and will then ensure a better market structure and a clearer framework for service providers.
