EU member states need to transpose the new Audiovisual Media Services (AVMS) Directive by 19 September 2020.
In 9 countries a draft law is in preparation but the information available on the expected calendar of adoption shows that some countries may be unlikely to meet the transposition deadline.
Cullen International has just published two new benchmarks that track the progress in the transposition of the directive across 14 European countries.
The latest developments that occurred since the last report include the launch of public consultations in Denmark and in Poland. In particular, in Denmark the ministry is consulting until 3 December 2019 on a draft law.
The report covers interesting proposals such as the creation of a "super regulator" in France and the requirement for video-sharing platforms established in Denmark to register before the Radio and Television Board and to comply with rules on product placement and sponsorship.
