The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) published its new Policy on the ownership and control of broadcasting services on April 26.

The policy reflects the contents of the BAI Strategy Statement 2011-2013 and the legislative provisions of the Broadcasting Act 2009 which requires that the BAI endeavours to ensure the provision of open and pluralistic broadcasting services and the promotion of diversity in control of the more influential commercial and community broadcasting services.

The Ownership and Control Policy (2012) sets out a number of factors that will be considered by the BAI when assessing applications for broadcasting contracts and for variations to the ownership structures of contract holders.
