February Update: Tech, Media and Telecoms

4 February 2019

What's on the agenda this month

by Plamen Sendrev, Digital Policy Executive

Internet regulation – undoubtedly, the only issue cutting thorough the Brexit noise recently, and an issue encompassing nearly every aspect of the media, telecoms, and tech industries. 

The main event in February will undoubtedly be the long-awaited White Paper on Online Harms. The document is expected to set out a range of legislative and non-legislative measures, detailing on how the DCMS and the Home Office plan to approach a full range of challenging online harms.

On Thursday 7 February, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport will publish the Museum and galleries monthly visits figures, and the Broadcast Committee of Advertising Practice’s consultation on Audio Description in TV Advertising will come to an end. 

Two important consultations also come to an end on Monday, 11 February and Tuesday 12 February - one on the potential merger between The Times and the Sunday Times, and the BBC’s consultation on age-related TV licence policy.
