PENALTIES

Because MultiChoice operates in a highly regulated environment in South Africa, compliance is important. The company participates in the regulatory process affecting the communications industry through various public forums and debates, providing inputs on formulating standards and strategies for this industry.

MultiChoice and M-Net received some fines (R10 000) from the self-regulatory body, Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa. These relate to incorrect scheduling of content and the incorrect parental guidance rating for certain content or in the electronic programme guide. Most of these problems are due to human error. Steps are being taken to correct this both by M-Net and with third-party suppliers of channels.

Once again, in the past year, there were no environmental accidents, nor were any environment-related fines imposed by any government. The group will continue to refine its processes for managing its impact on the environment.
