On 17 June 2020, the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) and the Radio Spectrum Policy Group (RSPG) organised a workshop with the European Commission (DG Connect) to discuss the progress made since the second workshop in October 2019 on the authorisation processes in relation to 5G spectrum bands.

 
The Commission adopts Implementing Regulation to pave the way for high capacity 5G network infrastructure

The Commission has adopted the Implementing Regulation on small-area wireless access points, or small antennas, which are crucial for the timely deployment of 5G networks that are delivering high-capacity and increased coverage as well as advanced connection speeds. The Regulation specifies the physical and technical characteristics of small cells for 5G networks. It aims to help simplify and accelerate 5G network installations, which should be facilitated through a permit-exempt deployment regime, while ensuring that national authorities keep oversight.
