Cable Europe wishes to support the Commission’s work in updating the Recommendation on Relevant Markets and welcomes this opportunity to participate in this call for input as part of a pre-public consultation process.

Cable Europe wishes to express its desire to further contribute once the Commission has formed an opinion on possible options for reshaping the way markets are chosen or where the Commission is in a position to indicate its views on additions or withdrawals to the list of Relevant Markets. Cable Europe expects that the consultation procedure will follow that used in the previous revision of the Recommendation on Relevant Markets where the initial call for input (in 2005 as part of a call for input on the proposed reform of the Regulatory Framework) was succeeded by a more detailed consultation (in 2006) once an actual proposal was ready to be put to stakeholders. This is especially true where there is a change to the three criteria test or any addition or removal of the markets contained in the list of relevant markets.
