Publication date: Thursday, July 13, 2017
Plenary assembly of May 31st, 2017

The CSA noted the diffusion by Skyrock in Nice and Cannes (frequency 107 MHz), like in Toulon (frequency 89 MHz), where the service is authorized of category D, of promotional messages in favour of a valid commercial deal in the “ VAr ” and the “ Riviera ”.

The Council was called, on the one hand, to determine if the advertisement in question entered the field of the definition of local publicity and, on the other hand, to draw the conclusions from this qualification in terms in particular of respect of the obligations of Skyrock.

The Council considered that these promotional messages raise of local publicity within the meaning of article 3 of the decree n° 94-972 of November 9th, 1994 insofar as on the one hand they were diffused on a basin of population lower than six million inhabitants, and on the other hand understand an explicit local identification.

The CSA thus put in residence S.A. Vortex, editor of the Skyrock service, to conform, in the future, with the provisions of the article 1stof the decree n° 94-972 of November 9th, 1994 relating to the access to local publicity and local sponsorship, while abstaining from diffusing, in a zone where it does not diffuse at least three hours of programme of local interest between 6 a.m. and 22 hours, of the messages of local publicity within the meaning of article 3 of the above mentioned decree.
