Statement: Proposed changes to broadcast licence conditions

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

Statement published 20 November 2020

This Statement sets out changes that Ofcom is making to the conditions included in television, radio and multiplex broadcast licences issued under the Broadcasting Acts 1990 and 1996.

These include two amendments to television broadcasting licences to reflect the new requirements of the revised Audiovisual Media Services Directive (“AVMSD”) and the UK Government’s implementation of it through the Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2020 (“the AVMS Regulations”) which came into force on 1 November 2020.

Our proposals for television licences also reflect changes to legislation which will take effect following the end of the transition period. Finally, this Statement also sets out some other changes we are making to all broadcast licences.
