Transposition of Directive 2014/61/EU on measures to reduce the cost of deploying high-speed electronic communications networks

The Parliamentary Secretariat for Competitiveness and Economic Growth together with the Ministry for Transport and Infrastructure are proposing amendments of the Utilities and Services (Regulation of Certain Works) Act (Chapter 81 of the Laws of Malta). Other laws being amended albeit to a significantly lesser extent are the Electronic Communications (Regulation) Act (Chapter 399 of the Laws of Malta) and new regulations under the Building Regulation Act (Chapter 513 of the Laws of Malta).

All stakeholders are encouraged to provide feedback to this consultation document. Such input will provide added value to these proposals and help with the formulation of the transposition process, particularly as regards any aspects relating to national circumstances.
 
Submissions on the proposed changes to the various laws coupled with the making of new regulations are hereby being invited. Where feasible the text of the implementing legislation adopts similar wording as that of the Directive. In some instances the implementing legislation may have been drafted in a way that uses language that differs from the wording of the Directive in order to clarify its meaning for legal or domestic policy reasons.

Submissions must be sent in through the following channels:
