Welcome to the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority website


On the 26th May 2011, the Government implemented the EU's new electronic communications package with the publication in the Gibraltar Gazette of five new regulations amending the current legislation on electronic communications. They amend the current Communications Act 2006, Communications (Access) Regulations 2006, Communications (Authorisation and Licensing) Regulations 2006, Communications (Universal Service and Users' rights) Regulations 2006 and Communications (Personal Data and Privacy) Regulations 2006.

The five regulations transpose the amendments made by Directive 2009/136 and Directive 2009/140 to the 2002 package of EU directives on electronic communications.

The amendments introduced in the Directives are primarily aimed at: simplifying some of the existing procedures; allowing transfer and leasing of individual rights to radio frequencies; the re-drafting of the provision on co-location of facilities; adjusting some of the definitions; taking account of technological progress; re-inforcing provisions on end-users with disabilities; strengthening of other consumer protection rules.

The texts of the Communications Act and all the regulations available on this website are the consolidated versions as published by the Government's Gibraltar Laws website.
