Regulations

Key legal references in the Romanian audiovisual sector

As in all EU Member States, the legal framework governing the audiovisual sector in Romania is complex.

There are two legal “pillars” which form the basis of the audiovisual regulations:
1. Audiovisual law number 504/2002
2. The Regulatory Code Regarding Audiovisual Content, which was adopted by CNA in 2006.

These pillars contain the main principles regarding the “rules” of the audiovisual sector in Romania, and there are a number of other laws and regulations which apply – all of which can be found in this section of the site.

Most of the legal information is only available in Romanian, therefore this section of the site aims to provide interested parties with links to the relevant part of the Romanian section.
