No, an Access Provider may not decline to engage in any discussions or negotiations with Access Seekers solely based on the ground that the Access Provider has Access Agreements with other parties pending registration with the SKMM. Parties are
reminded of their obligation to negotiate (under subsection 5.4 of the MSA) with Access Seekers who wish to seek access. Access Providers may not refuse an access request except when the Access Provider has valid ground(s) of refusal as provided
for under subsection 5.4.11 of the MSA.
