Regulation (EU) No 531/2012 expires on 30 June 2022. The aim of the proposal is to extend it, while adjusting the maximum wholesale charges to ensure sustainability of the provision of retail roaming services at domestic prices, introducing new measures to increase transparency and ensuring a genuine ‘roam-like-at-home’ experience in terms of quality of service and access to emergency services while roaming. As Regulation (EU) No 531/2012 has been amended several times, the purpose of the proposal is to recast the Regulation to improve clarity and replace the multiple amending acts it contains.
