Ukrainian mobile phone market has recently become the target of an avalanche is actually a variety of legislative initiatives, the main purpose of which is very noble order in sales of devices and to ensure its control of the state. However, the proposed mechanisms for achieving this goal sometimes cause some problems. Thus, in order to prevent the illegal importation into Ukraine "gamers" Vitaliy Korzh MPs and Yuri Moroka proposed bill number 9695 "On Amendments to the Law" On Telecommunications "on the prevention of use of the terminals, the legality of importation of which into the territory of Ukraine is not confirmed," registered in Verkhovna Rada. The bill provides for the creation of a unified database of subscriber equipment, with which to decide whether to allow or not the phone for service in the Ukrainian telecommunication networks. According to the proposals, the duty to maintain and update this database assigned to UCRF - The Ukrainian State Centre of Radio Frequencies. Define the same order of bases and access to the National Commission exercising the state regulation of Communication and Information (NKRSI). Domestic telecom operators, according to the bill will have free access to this database. Their duty is to make sure that the networks served only "allowed" terminals. In this case the owners of phones, which legality is questionable, will have 90 days to confirm the legality of import to Ukraine of its vehicles. Actually, the current bill continues to have begun the process of control, so that the Ukrainian network served only legally imported into the country phones. So, as you know, in March 2009 in Ukraine there is a new procedure for import and sale of electronic resources, which provides grant UCRF customs documents and information on their IMEI-codes (pyatnadtsatiznachny code, which is a unique serial number of each mobile terminal standard GSM) for 10 days after importation. And only after that mobile phones can be implemented. The purpose of this initiative is also known to determine the illegally imported to Ukraine mobile phones in order to further disconnect them from the network. Through her UCRF the end of last year, has already commissioned a computerized accounting system of mobile phones. The case remained for small: for the law off illegally imported "tubes". After attempts to get operators to do this without legislative ended in failure, and in this situation it is difficult to blame the operator. Of course, this initiative is very positive. Although, according to expert estimates, the attempt to disconnect the illegal phone operators will be met with hostility, because according to some estimates, the share of illegal vehicles in this country is about 40% of the total. This means that their Single-off could bring down the mobile phone market. But there is in trying to control the mobile phone market is one more thing. In particular, this refers to the identification of vehicles imported into Ukraine. The fact that the buyer should be able to determine whether legal phone he buys, without a doubt. However, the suggestions of such identification confusing. In particular, as reported by "Bagnet" last year NCCR "adopted as a basis for" a project of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine "On approval of the labeling of electronic means and emitting devices, which are imported from abroad, produced and sold in Ukraine." The idea is that each phone sold in Ukraine will affix a stamp evidencing the legality of his stay in the market. According to the text of the document, marking the radio user marks is done "in order to control its traffic in Ukraine, promoting the protection of the Ukrainian market of substandard and unauthorized use of radio equipment, as well as the prevention, detection and elimination of violations of legislation in the field of telecommunications and consumer protection." The draft provides that the marking is subject to each unit of radio equipment, which can be applied in the territory of Ukraine to the frequency bands shared, regardless of make, model and application. Marking applies to radio equipment, which is imported from abroad, as well as that which is produced or sold in Ukraine business entities in the manner prescribed by law. Some of the provisions of this document looks very strange. For example, the draft government decision, and the NCCR SE "Ukrelekon" (the company that "push" one manufacturer brands) have indicated already, and the price of one brand. Thus, paragraph 7 of resolution reads: "To establish the fee to cover costs related to production, storage and sale of stamps to mark records electronic means and emitting devices, which are imported, manufactured, sold and operated in Ukraine, the operation of the automated control system treatment in Ukraine marked electronic means and emitting devices, which are imported for the purpose of sale or manufactured in Ukraine in the amount of 5, 04 hryvnia for one brand. " That is, before making any bids, "the organizers of" marking of mobile phones already have calculated to the penny how much each Ukrainian who buys a phone, you will overpay for him (the price of stamps, of course, included in the price of the unit). This nuance makes it clear that all of this initiative is "selfish" ins and outs, and implemented in the interests of one company mentioned the SE "Ukrelekon." It is also worth remembering that the scheme began in 2008, when GP "Ukrelekon" NCRC and began a large-scale fraud Ukrchastotnadzor by pumping the budget for implementation of the idea of
