The new European Electronic Communications Code ("EECC"), approved by Directive (EU) 2018/1972 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018, is one of the milestones of the (r)evolution of the sector in 2020, and one that certainly will bring significant impacts for the coming years.

It is a highly complex document, which may hamper the finding of the new rules and solutions proposed by the code to the market. To assist on this task, VdA has devised a user friendly version of the EECC, intending to help in the interpretation and implementation of the code.

This version includes after each chapter the recitals considered relevant, which in the particular case of the EECC, are especially useful to discover the meaning and extent of the rules adopted. In this document you will also find remissive and thematic indexes and an interactive map of the code, with different colors, which can be used along the document through a sidebar.
