Where do all printed media products published in Hungary get collected, and is launching a newspaper subject to a licence?
Pursuant to the provisions of the Media Act, the NMHH maintains a register of print media products, as well as online media products and news portals. At present, there are over 5,800 reported print media products in Hungary. The official database of print media products contains the contact details and information of respective founders and publishers.
What jurisdiction does the Authority have over the printed press?
Legislative provisions applicable to all Hungarian media content and their respective creators are set out in prevailing media law – commonly referred to as the Media Act and the Media Constitution. The NMHH is a competent organisation overseeing the compliance of affected media, including printed press products. All of this is important to provide players of the media market with a predictable environment to operate in, as well as to ensure the protection of consumers in the possible most effective way.
