This analysis covers the work of the Broadcasting Council (hereinafter BC or the Council) on the implementation of the rules and regulations for pursuit of activities in the Macedonian media space, with the aim to provide directions and recommendations for future
improvements. That aim arises from the need to ensure full and consistent realisation of the aim of the Law on Broadcasting Activity (hereinafter the LBA), as defined in Article 2 of the Law.
The analysis focuses, above all, on BC’s actions regarding the violations of the LBA committed by the broadcasters, and on a number of internal rules and regulations of the Council.
The analysis covers a period of 24 months, from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2013. During that period, the BC conducted regular monitoring of the work and operations of broadcasters (in accordance with BC’s monitoring programme and acting on submissions filed by the citizens).
