New collaboration between the Norwegian and Polish electronic communications authorities

Director General of the Norwegian Communications Authority Torstein Olsen has recently returned from a visit to the Polish Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) at the invitation of the President of UKE Magdalena Gaj. The purpose of the visit was to initiate collaboration in selected areas.

The two regulatory bodies met in Warsaw in early February. This is the first bilateral meeting between the two authorities. The purpose of the meeting was to prepare the ground for a possible collaboration agreement between UKE and Nkom, against the backdrop of the Norwegian Government's recently published strategy for increased cooperation with Poland.

"Poland has become an important partner for Norway in many areas, and it is therefore only natural that we nurture collaboration in the electronic communications field too," says Torstein Olsen.

The topics that were discussed at the meeting in Warsaw include frequency regulation and frequency auctions, mobile phone radiation, broadband services, and postal and electronic communication services subject to a universal service obligation. UKE will visit Nkom later this year, with the aim of formalising the collaboration between the two regulators in a separate agreement.
