The telecommunications industry is growing and changing at a very high pace. The growth is not only in terms of volume but also in terms of changing needs and technology. To keep up with this high pace and fast changing technologies countries need strong legislation and an efficient regulatory system to promote fair competition in industry. In this study a review of existing telecommunications legislation and regulations in New Zealand (NZ) is conducted. The study highlights the existing legislation in the country and discusses the organizations responsible for regulating the underlying laws.
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment is the government agency which deals with telecommunications legislation. The Commerce Commission of NZ is responsible for enforcing the regulations as per the approved legislative Acts. In NZ the existing legislation related to the telecom industry is bound to the Telecommunications Act 2001.
