Published 19/07/2014 | 12:00
THE Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) is calling on the people of Carlow to submit proposals to a public consultation for a revised draft Code of Programme Standards that will apply to all Irish broadcasters.
There are seven guiding principles underpinning the draft code. They are respect for community standards; importance of context; protection from harm; protection of children; respect for persons and groups in society; protection of the public interest; and respect for privacy.
Speaking at the launch of the public consultation CEO of the BAI, Michael O'Keeffe, said, 'Developing a Code of Programme Standards is a challenging task, not least because there is no absolute, universally shared sense of what standards are or what should be observed.
Responses can be submitted online at www.baifuture.ie, by email to email@example.com or by post to BAI Draft Code of Programme Standards, Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, 2-5 Warrington Place, Dublin 2.
