The Methodology regarding the evaluation of cases of disinformation was approved

The Audiovisual Council (CA) approved in the meeting on Friday, September 15, the Methodology regarding the detection and evaluation of cases of disinformation in audiovisual content. When drafting it, good practices adopted at the level of the European Union and the European Convention on Human Rights were taken into account.
The methodology provides for the stages of evaluation of a case of misinformation by the CA following a petition or a control initiated by the institution, the description of the context in which the case arose, the application of evaluation criteria through answers to a set of questions, including whether the information falsely or deceptively disseminated has harmed or is capable of harming national security.
On September 11, 2023, a new wording of the definition of disinformation entered into force in the Audiovisual Media Services Code, namely “disinformation is the intentional dissemination, by any means, in the public space, of information whose false or misleading nature can be verified and which are likely to harm national security”.
The methodology was publicly consulted and includes proposals from the AO “Center for Independent Journalism” and the AO “Association of Electronic Press”.
