ECA publishes updated documents for consultation on proposed telecom directives

24 Aug 2020

As part of a stakeholder consultation on two new regulatory directives, the Ethiopian Communications Authority (ECA) said it was taking the ‘unusual step’ of reissuing the English versions of the final draft versions. In publishing the ‘Telecommunications Interconnection Directive’ and the ‘Telecommunications Infrastructure and Collocation Directive’ in both Amharic and English, the regulator said it had opted to release updated versions of the latter – having originally published drafts on 3 August – so as to incorporate helpful comments it had received from stakeholders since that date. Meanwhile, the ECA has also now confirmed a closing date for the consultation, with interested parties directed to make any submissions by 12 September 2020.
