NAB Submission to ICASA on the Position Paper on Ownership and Control

13 February 2004
ICASA published its Discussion Paper on the Review of Ownership and Control of Broadcasting Services and Existing Commercial Sound Broadcasting Licences in Notice 1825 published in Government Gazette 23873 dated 30 September 2002 (“the Discussion Paper”). Interested parties made written and oral representations on the Discussion Paper to ICASA. Subsequent to ICASA having duly considered both the written and oral representations by interested parties, ICASA issued The Review of Ownership and Control of Broadcasting Services and Existing Commercial Sound Broadcasting Licences Position Paper ("the Position Paper") on 13 January 2004 The Position Paper is divided into four parts, namely
  • Part A - the introduction;

  • Part B – a summary of the submissions on the Discussion Paper

  • Part C - ICASA`s findings and policy decisions; and

  • Part D - ICASA`s proposed amendments to some of the provisions of the Independent Broadcasting Authority Act, 1993 (“the IBA Act”).

The NAB wishes to place on record its belief that it would not be in the public interest for Option One to be adopted, that is, for ICASA to be able to make regulations on key ownership and control policy issues without proper Parliamentary guidance. Thus the NAB supports Option Two, that is, amendments to be made to sections 48-50 of and to Schedule 2 to the IBA Act
