Study on the implementation of the new provisions in the revised Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD)

Activity: Consultancy


I was invited to participate in the study as a national expert for Belgium (Flanders and Wallonia-Brussels Federation). I contributed to the mapping of:

• the existing and planned legislative and co-regulatory measures, which apply to video-sharing platforms and aim to protect users and minors from certain content and consumers from harmful audiovisual commercial communications (task A);
• the current legislation and rules governing media ownership structures, and the transparency and disclosure provisions with regard to media ownership (task B);
• the existing or planned legislation or other measures addressing the issue of overlays (all technical possibilities that exist to overlay commercial content or other services over audiovisual media services or to change in any way these services) (task C).
