Virtual Network Operator Approval License

What is a VNO Approval License?


A VNO (Virtual Network Operator) Approval License is a license that lets a company operate as a virtual network operator in a particular area. Virtual network operators are companies that offer telecommunications services, like messaging, data, and voice, without owning the actual network infrastructure. Instead, they rent network capacity from traditional network operators and use it to give their own customers services.

In many countries, VNOs have to get a license from the group that regulates the telecommunications sector. The license usually sets the rules and guidelines for how the VNO can operate, such as which services it can offer, where it can provide service, and the technical standards it must meet.

The specific rules and guidelines for getting a VNO Approval License can be different depending on the area, so it’s important for companies that want to become VNOs to research the specific regulations and requirements in the areas where they want to work.

Benefits of VNO Approval  License

Simplifies the process of claiming preferential tariff treatment

The REX system allows registered exporters to self-certify the origin of their goods, which simplifies the process of claiming preferential tariff treatment under a trade agreement. This helps reduce administrative burdens for businesses and promotes trade between participating countries.

Streamlines the rules of origin certification process

Without the REX system, exporters would need to go through a formal certification process with a government agency or an authorized body for each shipment of goods they send. This process can be time-consuming and expensive. The REX system streamlines this process by allowing registered exporters to self-certify the origin of their goods for up to 12 months.

Helps ensure compliance with rules of origin requirements

The REX system helps ensure that exporters are following the rules of origin requirements set out in the relevant trade agreement. By requiring exporters to register with their national authorities and provide detailed information about their products and operations, the REX system helps prevent fraud and ensures that preferential tariff treatment is only granted to eligible products.

Enables businesses to take advantage of preferential tariff treatment

The REX system enables businesses to take advantage of preferential tariff treatment under the applicable trade agreement, which can make their products more competitive in the international marketplace. This can benefit both businesses and consumers by increasing access to a wider range of products at lower prices.

Promotes trade and economic growth

By making it easier for businesses to trade goods between countries that have signed preferential trade agreements, the REX system helps promote trade and economic growth. This can benefit businesses and consumers alike, by increasing access to a wider range of products at lower prices.
