Regulatory reshuffle on the cards for Puerto Rico

22 Aug 2018

On 12 August Puerto Rican Governor Ricardo Rossello passed a new law to create a new multi-jurisdiction watchdog, the Public Services Regulatory Board of Puerto Rico (Junta Reglamentadora de Servicios Publicos de Puerto Rico), which will replace the Telecommunications Regulatory Board (Junta Reglamentadora de Telecomunicaciones de Puerto Rico, JRTPR) and a number of its sister agencies, including the Energy Commission and the Public Service Commission. The new watchdog will seek to improve efficiencies in public administration, reduce spending and establish a more nimble regulatory structure.
