The more ducts are available the better the chances for sustainable competition due to third party network roll-out. New generation services will not run along the current copper wires; a whole new infrastructure will be deployed, for which the bottleneck is the physical ducts through which connections will be deployed. 211 Francisca Pleguezuelos Aguilar Article 1 point 2 point c Article 2 point e PE v /102 AM\ doc

(s) harmful interference means interference which endangers the functioning of a radionavigation service or of other safety services, which technically obstructs the joint use of frequencies or which may otherwise seriously degrade, obstruct or repeatedly interrupt a radio communications service operating in accordance with the applicable international, Community or national regulations. Member States should be able to provide restrictions not only where such interference has been observed but also where it is likely that harmful interference occurs. In view of the seriousness of interference problems between one-way and two-way (receive and transmit) services, it is essential to provide protection against harmful interference, in line with internationally-agreed frequency plans, and particularly the ITU Geneva Plan (GE-O6). National legal systems must have the room to secure the common usage of spectrum. 216 Reino Paasilinna Article 1 point 2 point e Article 2 point s (s) harmful interference means interference which endangers the functioning of a radionavigation service or (s) harmful interference means interference which endangers the functioning of a radionavigation service or PE v /102 AM\ doc

Mobile network operators are required to provide a high quality of services under the universal service directive. Harmful interferences threaten mobile network operator services just like any other electronic communications service. Hence, a correct definition of harmful interference needs to cover all services, not just individual services which are deemed AM\ doc 13/102 PE v01-00

22 and to enable them to actively participate in and contribute to BERT. National regulatory authorities must have separate annual budgets and budgets shall be made public." The addition of paragraph 3a ensures that the Member States ensure the establishment of the Body of Regulators in Telecom (BERT) comprised of all NRAs. BERT would be set up as an association of national regulatory authorities that would not have an independent legal personality, i. e., in particular this body would not be part of the direct or indirect Community administration. This avoids all conflicts with the MERONI case law. 230 Erika Mann Article 1 point 3 b (new) Article 3 paragraph 3b (new) (3b) In Article 3, the following paragraph is added: "3b.)

Therefore, it is necessary to ensure that NRAs requirements of information are in accordance with Community and national law on business confidentiality. 240 Reino Paasilinna Article 1 point 5 Article 5 paragraph 1 1. Member States shall ensure that undertakings providing electronic communications networks and services provide all the information, including financial information, necessary for national regulatory authorities to ensure conformity with the provisions of, or decisions made in accordance with, this Directive and the Specific Directives. Those undertakings shall also be required to submit information concerning future network or service developments that could have an impact on the wholesale services made available to competitors. These undertakings shall provide such information promptly on request and to the timescales and level of detail required by the national regulatory authority. The information requested by the national regulatory authority shall be proportionate to the performance of that task.

30 information. The proposed addition concerning information on future network and service development would be problematic because that kind of information would contain most likely inside information. The threshold of such requirement should be very high. In this case it is not clear what would be the purpose and the added value of requiring the operators to submit such information to authorities. 241 Paul Rübig Article 1 point 5 Article 5 paragraph 1 1. Member States shall ensure that undertakings providing electronic communications networks and services provide all the information, including financial information, necessary for national regulatory authorities to ensure conformity with the provisions of, or decisions made in accordance with, this Directive and the Specific Directives.

31 shall give the reasons justifying its request for information. Or. de The requirement to supply information on future developments seems to attribute prophetic powers to the undertakings concerned; it also lacks precision, begging the question how concrete a development needs to have become before it is required to be notified. In the interest of the proportionality of the NRAs powers to require such information, and the legal certainty of the undertakings, a restrictive clarification is called for here. 242 Dragoş Florin David Article 1 point 6 Article 6 subparagraph 1 Except in cases falling within Articles 7(10), 20, or 21, and unless otherwise provided in the implementing measures adopted pursuant to Article 9c, Member States shall ensure that, where national regulatory authorities intend to take measures in accordance with this Directive or the Specific Directives which have a significant impact on the relevant market, or where they intend to provide for restrictions in accordance with Article 9(3) and 9(4), they give interested parties the opportunity to comment on the draft measure within a reasonable period.
