Telco applications considered approved

The Anti-Red Tape Authority on Wednesday assured telecom tower operators of the automatic approval of pending applications under Joint Memorandum Circular 01-2020.

ARTA director-general Jeremiah Belgica said the agency would declare all pending applications with complete submissions as automatically approved by operation of law.

“Thus, the issues raised by the telco and tower companies relating to their pending applications with the different LGUs prior to the effectivity of the new…should no longer be an issue since the LGUs or NGA involved should have automatically approved their applications after seven working days as stated in Section 15 of RA11032,” Belgica said.

ARTA asked telco and tower companies to furnish ARTA and the Department of Interior and Local Government a list of pending applications with LGUs and government agencies.
