This Workshop was a follow-up to two workshops organised by the Commission in December 2009 and October 2010. The objective of these workshops is to facilitate the exchange of views and best practices between the various stakeholders. This year the focus was placed on the effectiveness of the existing rules and codes of conduct, in particular on their enforcement.
The workshop was organised in the context of the Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD) that places an obligation on the Commission to encourage media service providers - whether offering traditional or on-demand services - to develop codes of conduct relating to audiovisual commercial communications for HFSS food to children, in line with Article 9(2) AVMSD.
The agenda of the meeting is available here.
The event was open to all the interested parties.
