Abstract: The INDIREG study on "Indicators for independence and efficient functioning of audiovisual media services regulatory bodies for the purpose of enforcing the rules in the AVMS Directive", which was conducted on behalf of the European Commission by a consortium of research entities that included the Hans Bredow Institute for Media Research and the Center for Media and Communication Studies (CMCS) at Central European University, resulted, in addition to the final research report, in individual country tables for each of the 43 countries covered by the study. This is the country table for Hungary, informed in part by questionnaires that were sent to the project's country correspondent as well as by Hungary's audiovisual media regulatory body, which at the time was the National Radio and Television Board (ORTT). This detailed country table includes general information on market data, audiovisual laws and regulatory bodies in Hungary; the powers of the regulatory body, including its sanctioning and its supervision and monitoring powers; the regulatory body's internal organization and staffing, including the appointment process to its highest decision-making organ and rules to guard against conflicts of interest; its financial resources, checks and balances on its operations and its procedural legitimacy; and its cooperation with other regulatory authorities and counterparts abroad.
