Public consultations allow the general public and stakeholders to share their opinions and participate in developing rules and regulations through open public consultations. Their inputs are considered and relied on in finalizing the regulations.

The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority publishes consultation topics that vary according to the targeted audience, whether telecom companies, beneficiaries, or the community. They can participate through the means specified by the authority on each consultation's page.

All public consultations - open and closed - are available on TRA website.

Objectives
  • Promoting participation and transparency.
  • Involving beneficiaries, stakeholders, and the community in decision-making.
  • Protecting beneficiaries and stakeholders' rights and understanding their expectations and needs.
  • Creating a flexible and adaptive regulatory environment.
