By means of the Catalan Audiovisual Council (CAC) Agreement 15/2017of 8 February 2017, the Board of the CAC has passed a new general instruction regulating the Registry of audiovisual media services providers. This new general instruction was published in the Catalan Official Journal of 13 March 2017, and will come into force three months after its publication.

The general instruction, by way of its nineteen articles, establishes the Registry as a public record of both a declarative and administrative nature which falls under the competence of the CAC. The purpose of the Registry is to have nominal and descriptive information relating to audiovisual media services providers, including the incidents and changes which affect their licence or prior communication, as well as the rights and duties affecting its compliance, and other data and information determined by the general instruction.

This Registry aims at keeping orderly and comprehensive information on the audiovisual sector in Catalonia and ensuring its active dissemination to society as a whole.
