The Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) is the regulatory Authority for the ICT industry in Kenya with responsibilities in telecommunications, e-commerce, broadcasting and postal/courier services. CA is also responsible for managing the country’s numbering and frequency spectrum resources, administering the Universal Service Fund (USF) as well as safeguarding the interests of consumers/users of ICT services.
Pursuant to Section 23 of the Kenya Information and Communications Act 1998 (as amended), the Authority is charged with ensuring consumers enjoy quality communications services at all times. In this regard, the Authority wishes to review The Guidelines for Network Redundancy, Resilience and Diversity (NRRD) on information and communication networks in Kenya.
These guidelines are intended to collect information on the status of NRRD by licensees in the sector and provide the empirical basis for potentially necessary regulatory interventions and appropriate procedures for use by network operators in support of sustained reliable and available Information and Communications Technology (ICT) networks in Kenya. The draft guidelines are available on the Authority’s website at: https://ca.go.ke/consumers/public-consultations/open-consultations/
Stakeholders, interested parties and the public are invited to submit their inputs and comments on the draft guidelines. The comments received will inform any changes to the final guidelines. The finalized guidelines will be published on the Authority’s website for use by the industry and the public.
Written submissions can be forwarded to the Authority through the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org on or before 19th May 2021.
