Consultation: Proposed changes to broadcast licence conditions

  • Start: 10 September 2020
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 08 October 2020

This document sets out changes that Ofcom proposes to make to the conditions included in television, radio and multiplex broadcast licences issued under the Broadcasting Acts 1990 and 1996 and provides licensees with an opportunity to make representations on them.

As part of these changes we are proposing two amendments to television broadcasting licences to reflect the new requirements of the revised Audiovisual Media Services Directive  (“AVMSD”) and the UK Government’s proposed implementation of it. The UK is required to implement the revised AVMSD, and after the end of the transition period for the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union (“EU”), this will be ‘retained’ EU law. Our proposals for television licences also reflect legislation which will take effect following the end of the transition period. Finally, we are consulting on some other changes to all broadcast licences.
