posted on 11 August, 2017   (public)

On 11 August 2017, the Belgian CSA (Conseil supérieur de l’Audiovisuel) published for the first time an overall assessment on how audiovisual services complied with their legal obligations towards minors’ protection in 2016 in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.

The CSA assessed how all linear and non-linear television services (registered with the CSA) fulfilled their obligations with regard to protection of minors, and how they complied with the legislation in force.

The CSA observed with satisfaction that nearly all services fulfilled their obligations regarding the protection of minors in 2016. This positive assessment is worth highlighting as the Wallonia-Brussels Federation claims to have one of the strictest regulations on minors’ protection in Europe.
