Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2020
The Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2020 (‘the Regulations’), are implementing in the UK the Audiovisual Media Services Directive, Directive (EU) 2018/1808 (‘the revising Directive’), which amends Directive 2010/13/EU on the coordination of certain provisions laid down by law, regulation or administrative action in the Member States concerning the provision of audiovisual media services in view of changing market realities (‘the Audiovisual Media Services Directive’).
The Regulations implement the Directive following the UK government’s guiding principles for transposing directives, including ensuring that (save in exceptional circumstances) the UK does not go beyond the minimum requirements of the measure which is being transposed. Such exceptional circumstances apply to these Regulations and they contain notifiable elements outlined in the Brief Statement of Grounds. The entirety of the Regulations are submitted as part of this notification to provide context for the element requiring notification.
