Belizean cabinet approves telecoms licensing amendments

3 Nov 2022

In a meeting chaired by Prime Minister John Briceno on 27 October, the Belizean cabinet gave its approval for an amendment to Statutory Instrument No. 110, titled ‘Telecommunications (Licensing Classification, Authorisation and Fee Structure Amendment Regulations 2021)’, to amend and clarify various aspects of the licensing process. The new regulations relate to the classification of licences, services provided under various licences, applicable licence fees and a clarification of the services which can be provided under a class licence.

While specific details regarding the new licensing regime have not yet been made available, the government press office explained: ‘These amendments would bring about much-needed clarity to the regulations, improve the administration by the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) of licence holders and update the fees payable under the regulations to be in line with current industry costs.’
