Business discussed the registration of mobile phones in the IMEI code database

29/ 11/ 2021
  On November 26, the European Business Association held a round table on draft laws №6183 and №6185 on mandatory registration of mobile phones in the IMEI database and disconnection of unregistered devices. Mobile phone manufacturers and distributors, as well as telecom operators, took part in the round table as the representatives of the European Business Association. The discussion was joined by authorities including one of the authors of the draft laws, namely, Oleksandr Fedienko, Deputy Chairman of the VRU Committee on Digital Transformation, a representative of the National Commission for State Regulation of Communications and Informatization, and the Ukrainian State Centre of Radio Frequencies. The EBA member companies fully support the need to solve the problem of import and sale of illegally imported mobile phones in Ukraine. After all, this problem not only causes significant losses to the state budget due to non-receipt of taxes and customs duties, but also creates unequal business conditions for law-abiding companies, and also carries risks for consumers due to the possibility of purchasing a phone not designated for the Ukrainian market, and thus not subject to a warranty repair. Meanwhile, the business has concerns over the texts of Draft Laws №6183 and №6185, namely regarding the situation with cloned IMEI codes, the import of mobile phones by physical individuals, the issue of cost for entering phones in the database, and many others. After all, if adopted, Draft Laws №6183 and №6185 will have a significant impact on the business processes and activities of both manufacturers and distributors of mobile phones and telecom operators. Therefore, it was extremely important for businesses to be able to voice their concerns about the problems that the business community may face after the adoption of the draft laws and to hear the views of government officials on how certain provisions of the draft laws will be implemented. We are grateful to the representatives of state bodies for their active participation in the meeting and we hope for further involvement of the EBA representatives in the work on improving the provisions of Draft Laws №6183 and №6185.   Be the first to learn about the latest EBA news with our Telegram-channel – EBAUkraine.
