The Commission's work on the second review of the Recommendation on Relevant Markets, which sets out a list of predefined markets subject to ex-ante regulation in the electronic communications sector, is well under way.

On 24 March 2014 the Commission, in accordance with Article 15 of the Framework Directive, formally requested BEREC's opinion on the draft text of the revised Recommendation and its accompanying Explanatory Note.

Previous working versions of the draft revised Recommendation and the draft Explanatory Note were published on 24 January 2014, following the Commission's inter-service consultation. In light of the feedback received from stakeholders, the Commission has amended the draft Explanatory Note before seeking BEREC's opinion.
