Accessibility of Audiovisual Media

The Audiovisual Media Services Directive or AVMSD (referred to as the Directive throughout this text) was adopted on 14 November 2018. In this section of the toolkit we give a brief introduction of the Directive with key definitions, provide a timeline for transposition and implementation, and indicate who the key players of the process are. We will also explain that it is a ‘minimum harmonisation’ Directive and what this means in practice.
