BEREC has until September 2016 to issue guidelines on EU Regulation

Excellent summary by EParliament Research Service alerted me to the unexpected footnote - the 9 months for BEREC STARTS on entry into force, three days after publication in Official Journal. So that's 9 months from 3 days after publication later this year (eh?)
Don't expect too much action on net neutrality by NRAs (even Netherlands/Slovenia/Finland) in 2016 while they scratch their heads in BEREC wondering what this all means....
"Article 5(3) 3. By …∗, in order to contribute to the consistent application of this Regulation, BEREC shall, after consulting stakeholders and in close cooperation with the Commission, issue guidelines for the implementation of the obligations of national regulatory authorities under this Article.
∗ OJ: please insert date: nine months after the date of entry into force of this Regulation.
Article 10 Entry into force and transitional provisions
1. This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
2. It shall apply from 30 April 2016."
