The European Communications Office
The European Communications Office (“ECO”) is the permanent office of the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (“CEPT”), which is an organisation where policy makers and regulators from 48 European countries collaborate in order to harmonise telecommunication, radio spectrum and postal regulations. The main duties of the ECO are to provide a European centre of expertise in postal and electronic communications, identifying problem areas and new possibilities in the postal and electronic communications field, and to assist and advise CEPT’s day-to-day activities. The ECO is located in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Convention for the Establishment of the ECO (“Convention”) was signed at Hague on 23 June 1993 and was amended twice (on 9 April 2002 and on 23 November 2011). Hungary is the member of the Convention since 1997, and the Hungarian Parliament has adopted on 12 June 2019 the act on the publication of the amendments made to the Convention.
