Summarise the regulatory framework for the telecoms and media sector. What is the policymaking procedure?
In Switzerland, the regulation of the telecoms and media sector falls into the competence of the Confederation. The policymaking pro- cedure is rather complex. The Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM) is generally taking the lead in drawing up new regula- tions. It develops proposals for measures and prepares draft legisla- tion for the Federal Council (ie, the federal executive government). The Federal Council then presents the proposals to the Federal Par- liament, which has the competence to enact new legislation.
