Channel Islands’ pan island regulatory body to demerge

24 Apr 2020

From July 2020 the Channel Islands Competition and Regulatory Authorities (CICRA) will revert to being separate authorities, the body has announced. As noted in TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, the CICRA was formed in December 2010, after the Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority (JCRA) and the Guernsey Competition and Regulatory Authority (GCRA) inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) designed to facilitate closer working between them.

Now, however, in a press release revealing that the joint entity is to demerge, the CICRA noted that a decision to withdraw from the model of a pan island body had been made by the Jersey Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport & Culture, with the Guernsey Committee for Economic Development having accepted that decision.
