Based on Law No. 04/L-44, Article 3, point 1.1, IMC has the mandate to prepare the Strategy for transition to digital broadcasting in the Republic of Kosovo as well as other strategic documents for audiovisual media services.
The Independent Media Commission (IMC) submitted the STRATEGY FOR DIGITAL BROADCASTING IN THE REPUBLIC OF KOSOVO to the Government of the Republic of Kosovo on 16 December 2019. The process of drafting the Strategy started years ago and the document submitted to the Government represents the work done by the IMC, in cooperation and consultation with all relevant institutions and stakeholders.
The drafting of the Strategy was done following the public consultation procedures within the legal obligation and it included a wide range of consultations with relevant local and international institutions as well as the national and regional/local media industry.
By this Strategy, IMC aims at establishing a strong legal and comprehensive basis, which will enable the successful implementation of digitalization as an important national project.
Digitalization is a result of technical-technological development, which also incorporates the internationally set deadlines to be met. IMC aims at complying with the set deadlines and believes that if cooperation and coordination of work is achieved, Kosovo will pass this process successfully and without significant delays, creating opportunities for citizens of the Republic of Kosovo to use quality services provided by Digital Broadcasting.
