New progress report on the transposition of the AVMS Directive across 11 EU member states 08 May 19

EU member states need to transpose the new Audiovisual Media Service (AVMS) Directive by 19 September 2020.

A public debate on the implementation of the directive has started in seven out of the eleven countries covered by Cullen International’s research. In France, Croatia and the Netherlands, governments are preparing draft laws which should be presented to their respective parliaments in the upcoming months.

Cullen International’s progress report provides information on the steps taken so far and the expected calendar of adoption. It also provides (where relevant) an overview of the areas (including beyond AVMS) that ministries are addressing and highlights the most interesting issues under debate

The report also summarises how some of the new rules  are addressed in current national laws (with reference to Cullen International’s detailed benchmarks) to allow readers to understand the areas where member states will need to make the biggest steps to align their national legislation with new EU rules.
The progress report will be updated regularly.
