On 21 January for 2016, The European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services (ERGA) adopted its work programme (WP) for 2016.

In previous years ERGA focused on advising the Commission towards a revision of the Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD).

In 2016, ERGA will continue this task. In addition, ERGA will start supporting and empowering its members in their supervisory practice and the application of the regulatory framework for audiovisual media services.

ERGA’s work  programme for 2016 covers three main areas:

  • Advising the Commission on regulatory challenges in the application of new legislative provisions from the point of view of regulators (I);
  • Exploring key themes which are of high relevance and beneficial to future-proof European audiovisual regulation (II);
  • Creating a Digital European Toolkit (DET) for efficient and flexible regulation (III).
