Consultation on service-specific Requirements in section 3.13 of Code 15

12 January 2022

The Phone-paid Services Authority (PSA) is consulting on a minor change to service-specific Requirements in section 3.13 of Code 15.

Following the publication of our final statement and Code 15 on 20 October 2021, we heard from several industry members involved in broadcast competitions and voting phone-paid services. They have told us that service-specific Requirement 3.13.3 cannot be implemented by them. 

We are therefore consulting on minor clarificatory changes to these service-specific Requirements.   

The closing date for this consultation is 23 February 2022.
