The Listed Events regime is underpinned by UK law in the Broadcasting Act 1996. The government is assessing how the reciprocal recognition of the listed events between Member States will work after the UK’s departure from the EU. This will depend on the UK’s future relationship with the EU, but will not change while we remain a Member State. The government currently has no plans to review the list of events.
