The discussion around the revision of the Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD) has generated debates in Europe about putting in place adequate national regulatory frameworks in order to promote European works and improve the circularity of the value chain.The need for comparative data and analysis on the different initiatives and rules in support of the promotion of European works in place in Europe (EU28, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland) has become crucial in this context.

For this reason, the European Film Agency Directors (EFADs) asked the European Audiovisual Observatory to produce a mapping report with a description of the above-mentioned initiatives and rules designed to promote European works that are currently in place in the 31 countries that are members of the EFADs (EU-28, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland).

For each of these 31 countries, the report aims at identifying the existing financial investment obligations applicable to broadcasters, VOD providers and distributors, and the levies to film funds that are imposed on the different players in the audiovisual industry (broadcasters, VOD providers, distributors, theatres, the video industry,...), as well as identifying the promotion obligations (quotas and/or prominence) imposed on broadcasters and VOD providers.The report also aims at providing a comprehensive comparative analysis of the functioning of these various support mechanisms.
