 Ruling Chambers

In the ruling chambers, regulatory decisions are taken on network access and rates approval cases and in the context of controlling sector-specific anti-competitive practices. The setting up of ruling chambers takes the specific European law requirements into account with regard to transparency and independence of decision-making mechanisms in regulation.
