image of Options for Regulatory Processes and Procedures in Telecommunications

The Report's purpose is to illuminate the alternatives that exist for national telecommunications regulation and to analyse the advantages and disadvantages of these various options. The Regulatory Colloquium itself, and the preparation of the Briefing Report, were funded by the New ITU Association of Japan. The principal authors are Michael Tyler and Susan Bednarczyk. The views expressed are those of the authors alone.



Processes of consideration and decision making

Once the regulatory agency has identified and defined an issue, and determined that it should be on the regulatory agenda with a relatively high priority, it must initiate a process of consideration and decision-making dealing with that issue. The design of this aspect of any regulatory system has two main aspects. The first is the regulator’s general working method, which will reflect a particular national approach to public administration. The second concerns the ways that specific functional requirements of the regulatory process are met: for example how the regulatory agency obtains the information it needs in order to arrive at a well-informed decision.
