If known expected date of next step


National particular circumstances

In principle, the regulation does not go beyond the minimum requirements in the Directive. However, the continued ban on advertising breaks and product placement in Danish programs and the continued 12 minute per hour upper limit for television advertising will go beyond the minimum requirements of the Directive.
