Electronic Communications Department
The department’s main role is to implement EU legislation covering electronic communications, national radio spectrum allocation tables, digital radio and television broadcasting, broadband access to the Internet and development of new electronic services. This department represents the interests of the Slovak Republic in committees and working groups within the European Commission (COCOM, RSC, RSPG, the GNSS Programmes Committee), the EU Council, The Administrative Board of the European Union Agency for the Space Programme as well as relevant Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) committees and working parties, and likewise with NATO, too.
Accordingly, the Slovak Republic’s membership in the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT), the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), the European Telecommunications Satellite Organisation (EUTELSAT IGO) and the International Mobile Satellite Organisation (IMSO) has tasked the Electronic Communications Department with a number of responsibilities, including the implementation of recommendations and decisions issued by these international organisations and the preparation of documents for the ratification of international treaties.
Within the Slovak Republic, the department cooperates with all authorities either acting or which are involved in electronic communications.
