Implementing the TPRP

CRTCThe CRTC has launched a consultation on updating its rules of procedures.

The Commission is proposing new draft regulations entitled Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure which are intended to replace both the Broadcasting Rules [pdf, 91KB] and the the Telecom Rules [pdf 230KB].

Bram Abramson observed on Twitter that this public consultation is consistent with one of the recommendations (9-27) of the Report from the Telecom Policy Review Panel. Recommendation 9-28 suggested that this process should occur at least every 5 years.

By the way, the next recommendation, 9-29, dealt with updating the process for cost awards, a subject about which we wrote last week. Last week, a consortium of carriers applied for a review of these procedures. David Elder writes more about that file here.

Government doesn't seem prepared to move forward in introducing legislative changes to implement the TPRP's recommendations; the CRTC is adapting to the changing industry dynamic by accommodating those changes that can be implemented within its own sphere of responsibility.
