ERGA has adopted the “ERGA Report on disinformation: Assessment
of the implementation of the Code of Practice”.
The report summarises ERGA’s 2019 work – being part of the assistance to the European Commission – of monitoring the implementation of the commitments made by the signatories to the Code of Practice on Disinformation.
As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ERGA has adopted two documents addressing the impact on the media sector and the measures taken by Member States, regulators and stakeholders:
Press release, where ERGA underlines the need for measures to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on the media sector and the European Single Market. It further introduces ERGA’s contribution to the issue (see also next document);
Note to extend the remit of its Subgroup dealing with Disinformation, which will now also gather information on the measures taken by platforms to tackle disinformation related to COVID-19, as well as measures taken by governments and NRAs. Members also decided to create an ERGA Action Group to exchange experiences and information about the crisis’ implications on the economic conditions for the audiovisual media sector in the Member States.
On 1 August 2018, Mr Ľuboš Kukliš, Vice-Chair of ERGA from the Council for Broadcasting and Retransmission of Slovakia, has become the interim-Chair for the remainder of 2018. He will also lead the Commission’s Expert Group in 2019. New chair of ERGA elections – Press release
