Duties for providers

We have summarised the key obligations in the document Guidelines for providers. The summary given in this document is neither complete nor exhaustive, and you as a provider have the responsibility to make yourself familiar with the regulations.

The obligations that apply to providers of electronic communications services derive from the Electronic Communications Act, the Electronic Communications Regulations and the Numbering Regulations.

Some of these obligations apply to all providers of electronic communications networks and public electronic communications services (ecom providers), while other obligations only apply to providers of public telephone services (telephony providers).

If you as a provider do not comply with the obligations, sanctions may be imposed. These are described in the guidelines.
