Earlier, the National Broadcasting Council consulted the draft regulation, two appendices and justification to them by means of social consultations.
The consultations were announced on 17 January 2013, and continued until 1 February 2013. They were open and addressed to the audience and players of the media service market including the on-demand audiovisual services market. Economic self-government organisations, the on-demand media services provider and natural persons participated in the consultations.
Having regard to the special nature of on-demand audiovisual media services, the Council, unlike in the case of requirements on the graphic labelling of programmes and other broadcast messages in linear services, reduced the number of age groups to four.
The Council’s Regulation comes into force on 28 February along with the act of 12 October 2012 amending the Broadcasting Act, which introduces regulations concerning on-demand audiovisual media services to Polish law.
