President Decision No. (13) of 2020 – Cell Broadcast Orders

Decision No. (13) of 2020 regarding Cell Broadcast Orders to the telecom service providers. The CRA has developed the Cell broadcast Orders in collaboration with the Ministry of Interior (“MoI”). The primary objectives are to implement effectively a Cell Broadcast solution for emergencies. This requires telecom Service Providers to upgrade their platforms and connect to MoI emergency platform so that messages will be sent directly to mobile phones in the area where an emergency has arisen. The users in the specific area will receive a notification in several languages, enabling them to react appropriately to the emergency.
