AFTER THE CONSTITUTION OF THE IMC, THE WORKING GROUP ON LEGAL ISSUES HELD ITS REGULAR MEETING

IMC25.09.2012 -
After the establishment of the IMC Commission, under the leadership of a member of the IMC Mr. Emrush Kastrati, who is also the chairperson of the Working Group on the Legal Issues, the meeting of this working group was held in order to analyze the first consolidated draft of the Regulatory Framework of the strategy for the transition to digital broadcasting in the Republic of Kosovo.

Besides IMC representatives participants in the meeting were representatives of national and local media. During the meeting were discussed the problems and legal obstacles that the Republic of Kosovo is facing in terms of its membership at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), which is constantly presenting a problem for the country in regard to the planning and coordinating of the frequency plan for broadcasting in the digital network.

In this regard, the Chairperson and members of the WG on Legal Issues agreed that this issue should be raised at the national level with relevant bodies so that this issue is discussed at the international level as soon as possible. All this with the sole intention to have the Republic of Kosovo be at the same step with the regulation of the digitalisation of the audio-visual media, in order to respect the deadline (June 2015) to transfer to the digital platform.

As far as the regulatory part of the first consolidated draft strategy for the transition to digital broadcasting, WG members expressed their willingness to contributing with their written comments.

In order to respect these deadlines, IMC expects from the WG to send their valuable comments in writing until 8 October 2012.
