Terms of Reference

 

“Taking into account the objectives of the Committee on Digital Economy Policy, the mandate of the Working Party on Communication Infrastructures and Services Policy (WPCISP) shall be:

   1.   To explore the different goals and analyse the strategies of Members and, as appropriate, Partners (i.e. non-members) in the area of communication infrastructures and services, including communication-related platforms and industries, in order to promote a common understanding of policies and increase international co‑operation.

   2.   To promote exchanges of experience and best practice among Members and with Partners and review global developments in the field of communication infrastructures and services policy and develop tools for measurement and international comparison.

   3. To contribute, in co-operation with WPMADE, WPSPDE and other relevant bodies, to the development of new indicators and statistical methodologies and the collection of internationally comparable data to improve the evidence base for policy-making in its areas of competence. This work should be undertaken in light of the policy priorities expressed by the Committee, with the support of a joint experts group, as appropriate.

   4.   To analyse the economic and social implications of changing communication market structures and technological developments, from both supply and demand-side perspectives. This will include the areas of the Internet and the convergence between the broadcasting, media and telecommunication sectors, the development of next-generation networks and increased broadband access.

   5.   To analyse international and trade issues in communications and information services, and promote co-operation in this field.

   6.   The Working Party shall maintain close working relationships with other relevant bodies within the OECD to ensure complementarity of efforts and effective use of resources. In the conduct of its work, the Working Party will also, as appropriate, draw on the views and expertise of Partners, international organisations and non-governmental stakeholders, and work with business, organised labour, civil society, and the Internet technical community within a framework of co-operation that promotes mutual understanding and participation.

   7.   The Working Party will undertake work as requested by the Committee on Digital Economy Policy (CDEP), and submit on a regular basis the results of its work for review by this Committee.

The mandate of the Working Party on Communication Infrastructures and Services Policy shall remain in force until 31 December 2018, unless the CDEP decides otherwise.”
