Online radio

Live online radio broadcasts to the general public are to be registered with us. The same applies to recordings where the broadcaster has decided the time of transmission.

Which broadcasts need to be registered?

Online broadcasts, intended for the general public, that need to be registered are:

  • Live streaming
  • Broadcast at times decided by the broadcaster.

These broadcasts may automatically be covered by the protection of the Fundamental Law on Freedom of Expression and certain regulations in the Radio and Television Act.

Broadcast designation

If your broadcast needs to be registered, you must also provide a name for it, i.e. a broadcast designation. The designation must be unique, so that viewers can identify the broadcaster.

Responsible editor

If you have an online broadcast that needs to be registered, you must also appoint a responsible editor and notify us that you have done so. The editor is legally responsible if freedom of expression violations such as incitement to racial hatred, defamation or insulting conduct are committed during a broadcast.
