BAI To Police Online Content

The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland will police video content on social media across the EU under new proposals before government.

The Sunday Independent reports the BAI will be responsible for news rules for content on sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The rules will require age verification, parental controls and a 'robust' complaints mechanism.

The BAI also want an Irish Online Safety Commissioner to form part of its increased regulatory role.

The companies involved have their European operations based in Dublin so any enforcement of regulations has to come from Ireland as well.

The BAI is proposing it would become an enlarged media commission to take on the role of regulating online content.

Currently it is responsible for rules governing commercial radio and television here along with RTÉ and TG4.
