When determining the significance of a disruptive effect as referred to in point (c) of Article 5(2), Member States shall take into account at least the following cross-sectoral factors: (a) the number of users relying on the service provided by the entity concerned; (b) the dependency of other sectors referred to in Annex II on the service provided by that entity; (c) the impact that incidents could have, in terms of degree and duration, on economic and societal activities or public safety; (d) the market share of that entity; (e) the geographic spread with regard to the area that could be affected by an incident; (f) the importance of the entity for maintaining a sufficient level of the service, taking into account the availability of alternative means for the provision of that service. In order to determine whether an incident would have a significant disruptive effect, Member States shall also, where appropriate, take into account sector-specific factors. [1]
