Consultation: Proposed Changes to the General Conditions and Numbering Plan

  • Start: 12 February 2019
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 15 March 2019

In line with the approach taken by Government departments and agencies, Ofcom is preparing for all eventualities relating to the UK’s planned withdrawal from the EU.

With this in mind, we are consulting on proposed changes that would need to be made to two Ofcom regulatory instruments in the event that the United Kingdom were to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019 without a withdrawal agreement being in place.

We are proposing that in such a scenario we would amend the General Conditions and National Telephone Numbering Plan so as to change references in those documents to the ‘European Union’ to either the ‘United Kingdom and European Union’ or ‘United Kingdom or European Union’, so that the scope of the regulations remains the same after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.
