Programme monitoring

The BLM monitors the programmes and services it has licensed to check, among other things, whether the licensees adhere to the programme guidelines, to the regulations for the protection of minors and the advertising rules. Programmes and services must not violate human dignity and must pay respect to the moral, religious and ethical beliefs of all members of the public; furthermore, the institutions of marriage and family must be respected.

For this purpose, the BLM conducts regular random checks. The BLM regularly requires recordings of several days of broadcasting for analysis. Speciallytrained
staff will analyse the contents aired and will establish the to pics covered as well as the programme formats, the relevance of each programme for the area the broadcaster services, the type and content of advertising and the duration of each programme element.
 

Online radio monitoring


In addition, almost all private radio stations in Bavaria can be monitored online. Specially-trained staff will analyse the contents aired and will establish the topics covered as well as the programme formats, the relevance of each programme for the area the broadcaster services, the type and content of advertising and the duration of each programme element.

Programme guidelines


The programme guidelines for local and regional services transmitted in Bavaria are laid down in the Bavarian media law under section 5, subsection 1. For national services licensed by the BLM, the relevant sections of the Interstate Broadcasting Treaty apply. The two sets of rules are largely identical.

Under the programme guidelines, programmes and services must not violate human dignity and must pay respect to the moral, religious and ethical beliefs of all members of the public; furthermore, the institutions of marriage and family must be respected.
