The report of the Satellite Action Plan Regulatory Working Group on "Market Access for Satellites" has recently been published by the Commission's Information Society Project Office.

The group is composed of representatives of the Commission, industry and the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations(CEPT). It was established following publication of the EU Action Plan "Satellite Communications in the Information Society", a Commission communication of March 1997. The aim was for the group "to look into the regulatory and market access issues, both from a domestic and extra-European perspective".

The report provides details of regulatory and market access barriers experienced by industry and makes recommendations for their removal. The key messages of the report include:

- The need for timely and effective implementation of EU Directives;
- The need for timely and effective implementation of CEPT Decisions and Recommendations;
- The need for the Commission to gain market access in third countries, especially in view of the open markets in Europe.
