ECC Report Public Warning Systems – Evaluation of different technical solutions and regulatory implications
Authorisation Directive (2002/20/EU) Article 6.1 provides a legal basis for use conditions by authorities of public electronic communications networks. These conditions are mentioned in Annex A of the Directive. Item 11(a) provides the legal basis for public warning systems over electronic communications networks.
The proposed EECC (Article 102a)rephrases that legal basis as follows:

“Public Warning Systems
1. By 42 months after entry into force, Member States shall ensure that, when public warning systems regarding imminent or developing major emergencies and disasters are in place, public warnings are transmitted by providers of mobile number-based interpersonal communication services to end-users concerned.
2. Notwithstanding paragraph 1, Member States may determine that public warnings be transmitted through publicly available electronic communications services other than those referred to in paragraph 1 and other than broadcasting services, or through internet access service or a mobile application relying on an internet access service, provided that the effectiveness of the public warning system is equivalent in terms of coverage and capacity to reach end-users including those only temporarily present in the area concerned, taking utmost account of BEREC guidelines. Public warnings shall be receivable by end-users in an easy manner.
BEREC shall, after consulting the authorities in charge of PSAPs and by 18 months after entry into force publish guidelines on how to assess whether the effectiveness of public warnings under paragraph 2 is equivalent to those under paragraph 1.”

The European community including BEREC could benefit from the regulatory and technical insight of ECC WG NaN PT ES of the different solutions available for PWS.
The work could consist of:
• Getting an overview of current practises
• Analysis of the different solutions with pros and cons

The references provided below should be considered in advance defining the scope of the work. A PT ES report would need to come from a different perspective. A regulatory perspective.
