The IMDA is reviewing regulations pertaining to Digital Display Panels ("DDPs") operating on a distribution network (“Distribution Network DDPs”), and is seeking views from the industry. Specifically, IMDA is proposing to create a new Class Licence under the Broadcasting Act to regulate operators of such DDPs in public places, given their wide public reach. 

The consultation paper on the proposed scope and key conditions of the new Class Licence is available here (405.67KB)

Interested parties from the industry are invited to provide their comments to the consultation by no later than 22 November 2019, 5pm, in the manner specified in Part 3 of this paper.
