Telecommunications Regulatory Authority

The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Bahrain (TRA) was established by Legislative Decree No. 48 promulgating the Telecommunications Law. The TRA is an independent body and its duties and powers include, among other things, protecting the interests of subscribers and users and promoting fair competition.

The TRA is required to carry out its duties and exercise its powers in a non-discriminatory and transparent manner. A board, appointed by the King of Bahrain on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers of Bahrain, oversees the TRA, the administrative work being run by the General Director.
