Research commissioned by the BSA
As part of the BSA’s role to oversee and develop the broadcasting standards system, we also commission and publish research.
Our research helps us understand community attitudes and expectations around broadcasting. It informs the application and development of broadcasting standards by making sure that the decisions we make reflect our community’s diverse, contemporary attitudes and opinions.
Our research also assists broadcasters to understand what the community thinks and how the standards apply.
A public consultation is when we seek the public’s views on an issue impacting the work that we do. It may be about a proposed change to broadcasting codes or an issue relevant to broadcasting standards.
