Bahrain TRA publishes consultation on SIM services


 Bahrain Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has published a second public consultation on the SIM-Card enabled telecommunications services registration regulation on its official website.

The new regulation requires the licensees to follow a more detailed registration and verification process for both prepaid and post paid subscribers in order to better protect the interests and privacy of mobile subscribers.

Khalid Bin Daij Al Khalifa, director of the Authority’s Cyber Security Directorate, said: “Following the first round of public consultation on the prepaid registration regulation, it has become evident to the Authority that the risks to the privacy and security of consumers are not just limited to prepaid market, and that further amendments were required in order to safeguard the interests of all types of consumers”

“After considering the feedback received we have had to carry out some material amendments to the previously published draft, which has necessitated a second round of public consultation in order to obtain the stakeholders feedback on the new regulation,” he added.
