CHAPTER 14.02 TELECOMMUNICATIONS ORDINANCE (2018) AND REGUALTIONS (AMENDMENTS)
The Turks and Caicos Telecommunications Commission release Public Notice 2022-1 to consult on amendments to Chapter 14.02 Telecommunications Ordinance 2018, Telecommunications (Fee Structure) Regulations 2020 and Telecommunications (Telecommunications and Frequency Licensing) Regulations 2005 that it proposes to recommend to government.
The Commission has functioned without any substantial amendments to the Ordinance. Much have transpired since 2004 and several weaknesses in the Ordinance and Regulations were exposed, which lessen the Commission’s ability to effectively regulate. The Commission therefore seeks to remedy these deficiencies by proposing amendments that will allow the Commission to regulate more effectively. The proposed amendments will bring the Ordinance on par with other TCI legislations which have provisions for things such as the charging of penalties, and the alignment of licenses renewal anniversary with April 1st.
