ATVOD launches consultation on proposed new Rules & Guidance

News article: 1st December 2014

ATVOD LAUNCHES CONSULTATION ON PROPOSED NEW RULES & GUIDANCE


Proposed changes reflect new statutory requirements for providers of on demand programme services

 

Since September 2010, ATVOD has published “Rules and Guidance” setting out the statutory requirements with which providers of On Demand Programme Services (“ODPS") must comply. The Rules replicate the relevant provisions of the Communications Act 2003, and are accompanied by non-binding guidance.

 

The Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2014 come into force today and further amend the Communications Act 2003, introducing new provisions relevant to providers of ODPS. ATVOD therefore proposes that its “Rules and Guidance” be updated to reflect these changes and has today launched a three month public consultation on its proposal.
