In various areas, the Austrian Telecommunications Act 2003 (TKG 2003) requires businesses which operate in the field of electronic communications to transmit data to the regulatory authority. Art. 90 TKG 2003 essentially governs the information obligations imposed on all providers of communications services in Austria.
On the basis of Art. 90 TKG 2003, the Austrian Federal Minister of Transport, Innovation and Technology also issued an ordinance (Communications Survey Ordinance) which defines the basis for comprehensive data provision obligations among selected companies. The data surveys are carried out by the regulatory authority.
In addition, the regulatory authority also conducts periodic data surveys among all companies operating on the Austrian market.
Additional information obligations aimed as specific companies may also arise from RTR decisions.
