A research project of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance on the EU-level Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD) delivers an updated comparison on amendment proposals put forward on 25 May by the European Commission.

The European Commission on 25 May 2016 announced the next steps of its Digital Single Market strategy, including a proposal for a Directive amending the AVMSD. At the Research Unit in Law at the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance a research project is ongoing, making publicly accessible all national transposition acts of the current version of the Directive.

Starting 25 May, the project offers a new service: a table overview summarising the changes the amending Directive would bring if it is accepted in the legislative procedure.

Prof. Mark Cole, who leads the project, previously spoke to Radio 100,7 on a leaked version of the Commission proposal.

Prof. Cole is the organiser and chair of the first conference to be held after the publication of the proposals that will deal with the AVMSD but also other key issues of European Media Law, such as the communication on online platforms. The event will be held on 2-3 June in Brussels, hosted by the Institute of European Media Law (EMR) and the Academy of European Law (ERA), with several high-level experts lined up as speakers, including European Commissioner Tibor Navracsics.
