The Communications Regulatory Agency (the Agency) was founded on March 2nd of 2001 by merging the two existing regulatory authorities: the Independent Media Commission (IMC) and the Telecommunications Regulatory Agency (TRA). The Agency is a convergent regulator, reflecting the merging of technologies in the telecommunications and broadcasting.

The Communications Regulatory Agency is an independent institution of Bosnia and Herzegovina operating at the national level by applying the Law on Communications of Bosnia and Herzegovina, in accordance with the general principles of objectivity, transparency, and nondiscrimination, and is fully independent in its decision-making.
