In order to respond to developing countries' need for guidance in the changing telecommunication
environment, ITU and its partner infoDev have developed an ICT Regulation Toolkit (www.ictregulationtoolkit.org). The
Toolkit assists regulators in the design of effective and enabling regulatory frameworks by sharing analysis and
information on key regulatory issues and best practices. It can be accessed online free of charge by policy-makers, regulators and stakeholders.
The Toolkit is continuously updated and includes modules on:
Regulating the Telecommunication Sector Overview;
Authorization of ICT services (including licensing);
Pricing, Competition and Interconnection;
Legal and Institutional Aspects of Regulation;
New Technologies; and
Universal Access (available 2008).
Each module provides an overview of the topic and a wealth of online resources and reference documents (over 850 in the
entire Toolkit), drawing on experience from around the globe.
