The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) issued an analysis of the secondary telecommunications legislation in Mexico, judging it as having "serious deficiencies." The OECD points out that the bill currently under debate would introduce market regulations it described as too restrictive and which would make it difficult for the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) to analyze market conditions and issue regulations. The report also said that the penalties that the bill establishes for telecommunications companies that the IFT has ruled to be monopolies are not internally consistent. The OECD also said that consumer protection has historically been a problem in Mexico's telecommunications sector and the new legislation doesn't take any steps to define how the IFT will cooperate with the Federal Economic Competition Commission (Cofece) and the Federal Consumer Protection Agency (Profeco).
