In Notice No. 529 published in Government Gazette No. 37803 dated 4 July 2014, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) published the Discussion Document on the Review of Regulation on South African Local Content: Television and Radio. MMA commends ICASA for initiating this process and publishing the discussion document. However, we are deeply concerned about the lack of reference in the document to the actual research done by the regulator. There are very few references to the research and case studies; this, unfortunately, weakens the “Discussion Document”.
