Draft Royal Decree on the Ministerial Authorisation in the context of deploying a 5G network

This draft is part of the implementation of the security measures necessary for supplying mobile 5G services. It lays down the restrictions on the use of the active network elements manufactured by a high-risk network element producer and for the use of service providers to manage and monitor their 5G network elements. Such restrictions were considered necessary given that alternative measures would not adequately mitigate the safety risk in question. These restrictions apply to MNOs, full MVNOs and certain operators of a private 5G network. The draft shall also specify the composition of the dossier to be submitted for the purpose of obtaining a ministerial authorisation. The draft also specifies the hypotheses in which an authorisation is necessary in the event of an update of software or hardware related to a network element.
