Hong Kong Reviews TV and Radio Codes of Practice

The Hong Kong Communications Authority (CA) has invited public submissions of views on proposals for relaxing or updating the codes of practice (CoPs) relating to programme and advertising standards of television and sound broadcasting services. The consultation period will last until 16 August 2023.

The Communications Authority completed a mid-term review of the domestic free television programme service licences and sound broadcasting licences in February 2023. During that consultation period, the CA received a number of suggestions from the public and the licencees relating to regulation of programme and advertising content.

In response to the views received and with the support of its Broadcast Codes of Practice Committee, the CA has reviewed the CoPs along the general direction of refining the regulatory regime to enable the licensees in meeting the challenges of the rapidly evolving business environment while protecting the interests of the community at large. Following the review, the CA has formulated a set of proposals for consulting the public. The CA will consider all the views received during the public consultation in taking the proposals forward.
