West African Audiovisual Regulators adopt founding texts

Regulation & Policy

The statutes and rules of procedure for the broadcasting regulators Platform in the countries of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA ) and Guinea Conakry were adopted at the "unanimity" by members of the Platform to generate founding texts of the organization during a meeting on 4 and 5 March 2014 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso .

The Platform brings together the chairpersons of the broadcasting regulators of different Member States. They also approved the texts of the West African Audiovisual Observatory as a tool in the service of the Platform. Its main mission is to collect socio- economic and technical data to conduct discussions on the audiovisual area of West Africa.

Presidency of the platform is provided by the President of the Superior Council of Communication ( Conseil supérieur de la communication  - CSC in French ) of Burkina Faso, Beatrice Damiba.

The Permanent Technical Secretariat is occupied by Ibrahim Sy Savane, President of the High Authority for Audiovisual Communication ( Haute autorité de la communication audiovisuelle – HACA in French ) in Côte d'Ivoire.
