To assist in assessing the progress made by the EU candidate and potential candidate countries towards compliance with the EU acquis for e-communications and information society services and convergence towards the Digital Single Market, the Commission is publishing a call for tenders for a study on "Monitoring regulatory and market development for electronic communications and digital services in the Western Balkans and Turkey".

This study is to monitor and assess progress made by each enlargement country towards compliance with the EU legislation and requirements for electronic communications and information society services, and convergence towards the Digital Single Market, which will in particular support the European Commission in monitoring and reporting on the progress and the degree of the approximation under Chapter 10 of the acquis.  To this end, the study needs to report on the legal, regulatory and market developments in each country, and assess the progress of aligning the relevant national ICT and digital policies - such as those concerning electronic communications, broadband, network and information (/cyber) security, e-commerce and e-government - with the policy goals and priorities set by the European Union in this area.
