Material jurisdiction defines the services to which the Directive applies.

This Report presents the European Regulators Group for Audiovisual media services (ERGA)’s collective view on how the material jurisdiction of the Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD) should evolve.  It was prepared by the ERGA sub-group chaired by Steve Gettings, Director at Ofcom UK. 

It presents recommendations to the European Commission on issues such as the "TV like" criterion, the "principal purpose of one service", the concept of editorial responsibility, audiovisual platforms/ intermediaries and other matters having impact on the scope of the AVMSD.

ERGA adopted this report 15 December 2015.
