Belgian telecom regulator BIPT has opened a public consultation on proposed legislation on the BE-Alert system. This involves an addition to the Electronic Communications Act requiring operators to distribute emergency messages and notifications from the government. A concrete application of the law could mean the mobile operators developing a cell broadcast system. A similar system is already in place in the Netherlands, where the NL-Alert platform launched in November 2012 disseminates messages over all three mobile networks in the event of an emergency.
