Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC), Virgin Islands

The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) is a statutory body responsible for regulating the telecommunications sector of the British Virgin Islands. The Commission is also responsible for promoting the development of telecommunications throughout the Virgin Islands (UK).

The Commission is governed by the Telecommunications Act, 2006 which was adopted in June 2006 and published in October 2006. It advises the Premier on telecommunications policies
internationally and regionally and protects the interests of users of
telecommunication services.

The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) also establishes and
monitors the implementation of national telecommunications standards and ensures
compliance. Responsibility for the regulation of licensees and authorization holders
also rests with the Commission. Ensuring fair competition among licensees and all
other operators of telecommunication networks or providers of telecommunications
services also falls within its purview. The TRC where appropriate, investigates
complaints by users of their failure to obtain compensation from public suppliers or
other licensees in respect of rates, billings and services provided, and facilitates relief
where necessary
