CRTC revises BDU audit terms


OTTAWA – The CRTC has tweaked some of the conditions around audits between broadcasters and broadcasting distribution undertakings (BDUs). The Commission said Thursday that the revised audit provisions clarify the manner in which audits are conducted by programming undertakings, thus ensuring a proper verification of the subscriber information held by BDUs. It also announced plans to issue a notice of consultation setting out proposed amendments to section 15.1 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations to bring into force the audit provisions set out in the appendix to this regulatory policy. www.crtc.gc.ca
