Telecommunications Policy Analysis: United Kingdom – splendid isolation

Telecommunications Policy Analysis: United Kingdom – Brexit mean no more European regulatory networks, no BEREC, no RSC, no RSPG, etc … splendid isolation: "These arrangements have been voted down and end with Brexit in early 2019. There will be neither more comitology nor multi-level governance, with the exception of domestic arrangements (e.g., Joint Ministerial Committees).

From the day of Brexit, OFCOM will cease to participate in:

Body of European Regulators of Electronic Communications (BEREC);

Communications Committee (COCOM);

Radio Spectrum Committee (RSC); and

Radio Spectrum Policy Group (RSPG).

 These bodies are constituted by EU legal instruments derived from EU treaties, with the committees and groups advising EU institutions. They have coordinated the creation and implementation of policies within the EU and European Economic Area (EEA).

The only possible exception would have been the “Norway option”. This now seems extraordinarily unlikely, though it might have preserved participation or observer status in some groups." 'via Blog this'
