The administrative regime of Corporación RTVE is ammended

20/04/2012
Reference Council of Ministries

The Council of Ministers resolved today to authorize a Royal Law Decree amending the administrative regime of Corporación RTVE which had been in force since the passing of Act dated on June 5th, 2006.

The situation which Corporación RTVE is experiencing since July 2011 requires to carry out, without any further delay, those modifications which not only entail financial savings for the entity, but also those which make possible the quick set up of the body in charge of managing RTVE and implementing the measures which its financial situation demand.

The vacancy in the Chairmanship of Corporación RTVE, together with the unavoidable need of adopting a number of decisions which are fundamental for the Corporación demand to carry out the amendment of the administrative regime of the Corporación foreseen in Act dated on July 5th, 2006 through a Royal Law Decree. Otherwise, there is a serious risk that a breach of the public service function which has been trusted to the Corporación RTVE might take place.

The Royal Law Decree includes the following amendments to the state-owned Radio and Television Act passed on 2006:

Free access for media to the sport stadiums

On the other hand, as a result of the Royal Law Decree, article 19.4 of the General Law for the Audiovisual Communication passed on 2010 has been modified, in order to guarantee to radio broadcasters free access to the sport stadiums, so that they can broadcast live sport events without being required to make any payment.

Thus, the dispute regarding the radio broadcasters’ access to the sport stadiums is ended, guaranteeing in this way the exercise of the fundamental right to communicate information.

However, as the exercise of this right by the radio broadcasters means the use of certain facilities in the sport stadiums in which the event takes place, the radio broadcasters must pay to the right holders the expenses which are incurred as a result of the maintenance of the facilities and the other services which are required for guaranteeing the right to communicate information.The parties will jointly set the amount for making use of those facilities. In case that the parties were not able to reach an agreement on the amount, it will be the competent audiovisual authority, which currently is the Comisión del Mercado de las Telecomunicaciones (The Telecommunications Market Commission) and, later, the future Comisión Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia (National Commission for Markets and Competition) the responsible of solving the dispute.
