Laws

The law is the base even of the existence of the CSA and the majority of his competences. That of September 30th, 1986 (n°86-1067), whose article 1st proclaims the freedom of the communication to the public by electronic way, is thus the keystone of the French system of regulation of the activities of audio-visual communication. Altered many times, it founds and frames the prerogatives of the CSA and fixes the obligations of the editors of services of radio, television or services of audio-visual media to request (SMAD). Other laws concern, for various reasons, the powers of the regulatory authority of audio-visual or guide their implementation.
