Study on Mobile Satelllite Services (MSS) authorisation regimes, authorisations and enforcement in the EU Member States - SMART 2013/0013


KG Law Firm is proud to announce its participation in a study on Mobile Satellite Services organized by the European Commission. This study, which was coordinated by the Madrid office of Olswang LLP on the basis of the tender SMART 2013/0013: "MSS Authorisation Regimes, authorisations and enforcement in the EU Member States", brought together twenty-one highly respected law firms to provide information for twenty-four jurisdictions in this area of increasing importance.

The overall objective of the study was to make an inventory of the regulatory state of play as regards Mobile Satellite Services ("MSS") and the complementary ground components ("CGC") authorisations across the EU. This project has provided detailed information as regards MSS/CGC authorisations in each of the EU member states to reflect the implementation of the applicable MSS/CGC Decisions, including latest changes that have been made into national legislations and other developments that have taken place.

The published study can be found on the page of the European Commission.
