Sanctions in the event of failure

In the event of persistent non-observance of its conventional commitments by a radio, the Council can send a warning statement, a formal notice to him, or initiate in its opposition a procedure to sanction. This one can lead to several types of sanctions: reading with the antenna of the station of an official statement of the CSA; financial sanction (in 2002, for non-observance during several months of its obligations, a radio was seen inflicting a financial sanction of 50,000 €); suspension of the program for one duration varying one hour in one month (in 1998, the diffusion of the program of a station was suspended during one day); reduction of the duration of authorization; withdrawal of the authorization to emit.
