Rada tightens response measures for non-compliance of NCU orders by operators, providers

KYIV. May 3 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The Verkhovna Rada has toughened response measures for failure to comply with the instructions of the National Center for Operational and Technical Management of Electronic Communications Networks of Ukraine (NCU) by operators and providers.

The adoption of bill with amendments to the Law of Ukraine on electronic communications to improve the efficiency of organizing the work of suppliers of electronic communication networks and services under martial law (No. 7227) was supported at the final reading by 355 MPs at a plenary session on Tuesday, a member of the Holos parliamentary faction Yaroslav Zhelezniak said on his Telegram channel.

The document, in particular, proposes to limit the time for holding consultations with market participants to prepare draft acts in a state of emergency and martial law, setting the norm "no more than three days."

In addition, the document defines the right of the NCU in a state of emergency and martial law to manage the operational and technical management of electronic communication networks, with the help of orders that are mandatory for providers of electronic communication networks and/or services.

The document also defines the exclusion of an enterprise from the register of suppliers as the basis for the cancellation of a license to use the radio frequency spectrum and/or number resource.
