AVMSD

AVMSD: ongoing lobby process        
The lobby process for the Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD) is in full swing. On 31 January, the European Parliament's Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) adopted its opinion on the AVMSD. This opinion should be taken into account in the final European Parliament’s position. This vote is a mixed result from a public health perspective, since several suggested provisions have been rejected. The main committee responsible for the file - Committee on Culture and Education (CULT) – will vote on its position in April.
