In building up efficient international cooperation, ANRCETI is guided by the basic principle: active international cooperation contributes to the improvement of the regulatory process and creates prerequisites for a fast development of the regulated sectors: electronic communications, information technology and postal communications.
After the Moldova - EU Association Agreement was signed on June 27, 2014 and the Government approved the National Plan of Implementation for 2014-2016, ANRCETI was engaged in a number of tasks related to the alignment of the regulatory process with the requirements of the Acquis. In this activity ANRCETI pursues the principles of the EU regulatory framework, which provides for an uniform, flexible and harmonized regulation of the electronic communications and postal service markets.
One of the main platforms that helps ANRCETI implement the provisions of the Moldova - EU Association Agreement, which entered into force on 1 July 2016, is the Eastern Partnership (EaP). Within the EaP initiative, regulators of electronic communications from EaP countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine), formed the Network of Electronic Communications Regulators from EaP countries (EaPeReg), in September 2012, at a meeting held in Chisinau. EaPeReg Networks aims to support the needs of the EaP regulators in harmonizing their national legislation with the EU regulatory framework.
ANRCETI also takes part in other projects at international, European, regional and bilateral levels on sectors covered by its regulation. The Agency's representatives attend meetings organized by international, European and regional bodies that Moldova joined: the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the Universal Postal Union (UPU), the Body of European Regulators for Postal Services (ERGP), the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT), Francophone Telecoms Regulators Network (FRATEL), Regional Communications Community (RCC) within CIS.
Another important segment of ANRCETI international activity is the bilateral relations with regulators from other countries, in particular EU countries. Moldova signed cooperation agreements with the view of facilitating the exchange of information and experience between the parties, as well as enhancing the opportunities for the establishment of sustainable partnerships with EU regulator.
ANRCETI’s active cooperation with EU and international specialized organizations, with regulators from other countries provides prerequisites for creating an innovative and efficient regulatory framework expected to contribute to the development of electronic communications, information technology and postal communication sectors from Moldova.
The activities mentioned above are coordinated by the International relations and European Integration Service of ANRCETI.
