ECS 03/2020 Disaster Management Regulations for the Electronic Communications Sector in The Bahamas

The purpose of this Consultation Document is to propose regulations for disaster management in the Electronic Communications Sector (ECS) in The Bahamas.

In this Consultation Document, the Utilities Regulation and Competition Authority (“URCA”) identifies Critical Electronic Communications Infrastructure (CECI) in the ECS in The Bahamas and proposes regulations to provide for the resilience and restorative ability of the CECI.  Resilient and rapidly restorative CECI improves the probability that the CECI will be available to facilitate preparedness, recovery, and restoration before, during, and after a disaster emergency in The Bahamas.[1]
