The Moroccan government has enacted Law No. 121-12, amending and supplementing the Post and Telecommunications Act No. 24-96. The new regulation is designed to give more power to telecoms watchdog the National Agency of Telecommunications Regulation (Agence Nationale de Reglementation de Telecom, ANRT) and will allow the ANRT to impose penalties on operators of up to 2% of their turnover before tax in cases of infringement. The bill also addresses consumer protection, infrastructure sharing and the integration of optical fibre infrastructure in buildings, and provides for the creation of a national roaming system, which will allow subscribers to use the network of any operator available in the area in which they are located.
