On 18 February 2016 Torstein Olsen, the Director General of the Norwegian Communications Authority (Nkom) paid a visit in Poland on the invitation of the President of UKE. Meeting of the heads of both regulators has initiated bilateral cooperation between UKE and Nkom.
During the visit both parties exchanged their best practices as regards the implementation of Digital Single Market (DSM) rules, service regulation, development of broadband Internet, management of frequency resources, consumer protection and regulation of postal services.
Furthermore, topics that should be discussed during a workshop were established. Among these were the Norwegian experiences connected with the determination of the active SIM cards number, education campaign concerning the impact of radiation generated by the telecommunications infrastructure on the human organism, effective cooperation between regulators of telecommunications and energy markets, monitoring of the frequency use and solutions implemented by Poland under the Act on supporting the development of telecommunications services and networks (Mega-law).
At the end both parties emphasised the need of further cooperation and its development, with reference to arrangements made by the heads of governments of both states during a visit of the Prime Minister Beata Szydło to Norway on 2 February 2016 concerning the strengthening of bilateral cooperation and the Norwegian Government's strategy for cooperation with Poland.
