EC Telecom Rules: More Progress on Emergency 112 Caller Location Info

The European Commission cited progress on the issue of European emergency number 112 caller location information. Following action from the European Commission, caller location information for mobile calls is now available in Latvia and that the issue is being tackled with urgency by the authorities in Poland. The issue of caller location information in these two countries will no longer be taken to the European Court of Justice.

There are five Member States in which caller location information for 112 calls from mobile phones is not yet available. These are Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Romania and Slovakia. In addition, the 112 number is not yet fully available in Bulgaria .
