CCITT looks to simplify licensing

17 May 2017

Uzbekistan’s Ministry of Development of Information Technologies and Communications (CCITT) has published a draft decision ‘On additional measures to improve telecommunications licensing activities’, inviting comments from stakeholders. The measures aim to encourage new entrants by cutting down on red tape, and making it easier for would-be operators to acquire concessions. The draft decision would remove the requirement for applicants to provide certification from other authorities confirming that the companies comply with fire safety and sanitation regulations. Further, the regulator intends ensure that applications can be completed entirely online by 1 January 2018.
