It must be noted that with the contribution of its regional offices, EETT prevents the installation of illegal local transmitters, conducts continuing monitoring measurements and records digital television broadcasts and, depending on the case, takes all applicable administrative and penal sanctions. Furthermore, EETT has informed the local authorities for the 23 locations nationwide in which the digital transmission facilities of the legally authorized providers will be installed during the transition period.
