Arcep welcomes new remits and powers granted by digital law

Tuesday 11 October 2016 | 11:04 CET | News
French regulator Arcep has outlined the main changes to its remits and powers following the final adoption of the digital law, approved by parliament at the end of September. The new legislation embeds the net neutrality principles based on EU regulation and gives Arcep the power to investigate and punish any violation of the new rules, as outlined by article 40 of the digital law. The regulator's investigative powers have been redefined in line with its wider remit, specifying how it can recover business documents, including digital ones, from potential offenders.
