CICRA (the Channel Islands Competition and Regulatory Authorities) has released its work programme for 2014.
The programme outlines the regulator’s projects in the areas of competition law and utility regulation, as well as the market studies to be conducted this year.
CICRA’s programme of market studies includes reviews of the islands’ primary health care sector, and the supply of aviation and marine fuel. It is proposed that both reviews will be conducted on a pan-Channel Island basis.
The telecoms programme includes the on-going review of the business connectivity market, with the aim of ensuring businesses have appropriate choice, quality and fair prices for such services. The allocation of spectrum for LTE purposes is a further substantial work area, which seeks to make new spectrum available in 2014 so that consumers in the Channel Islands have access to 4G services.
CICRA chief executive, Andrew Riseley, said: “We are mindful of our mandate to ensure we promote value, choice and quality in the goods and services available to Channel Islands consumers, and this work programme seeks to deliver this for the Channel Islands.”
