Cross-Channel Concepts

Besides concepts for the protection of minors involving closed user groups or technical means, providers can submit technical concepts for the protection of minors comprising a combination of measures involving different protection levels to KJM for assessment, so-called "cross-channel concepts for the protection of minors".

These usually cover convergent media offerings, comprising media services and broadcasting programmes. Depending on the issues of the protection of minors involved, these concepts comprise graduated technical protection measures, frequently taking into account both broadcasting and telemedia contents at the same time. To spur on the enforcement of cross-channel measures for the protection of minors, particularly in convergent media offerings, and to provide certainty to providers with respect to legal requirements and planning, the KJM makes use of its process of positive assessment in this area as well.
