2nd WORKSHOP ON
CODES OF CONDUCT ON AUDIOVISUAL COMMERCIAL COMMUNICATIONS OF FOODS HIGH IN FAT,
SUGAR AND SALT TO CHILDREN
Monday, 25 October 2010
On Monday 25 October, the European Commission organised for a second time a workshop on codes of conduct on audiovisual commercial communications of foods high in fat, sugar and salt to children.
The Audiovisual Media Services Directive places an obligation on the Commission to encourage media service providers (both traditional and on-demand) (art. 9.2) of the Audiovisual Media services – AVMS - Directive) to develop codes of conduct relating to audiovisual commercial communications for HFSS food to children.
This workshop was intended to allow an exchange of views and best practices between the various stakeholders, notably advertisers, audiovisual media service providers, consumers and regulatory authorities.
