A connected Continent. We aim to empower all end-users in the digital single market by facilitating choice. European consumers and businesses will be able to experience the gains of the digital market and may increase their trust in and their demand for digital services.It is thus a priority within the Digital Agenda for Europe to ensure timely and proper implementation into national law of the EU regulatory framework for electronic communications. To ensure this, monitoring is ongoing through regular contacts with Member States' authorities and other stakeholders.
The deadline for the transposition of the 2009 Reform Package into national legislation was 25 May 2011. At the beginning of 2013, 27 Member States had notified the full transposition of the revised Telecom Framework. In addition, Croatia had implemented it at the time of its accession in July 2013.Implementation is the responsibility of Member States. In order to minimise the risk of fragmentation of the market and lack of a level playing field, it is necessary to conduct continuous monitoring, prevention and enforcement of transposition, including handling of complaints.
