How does the broadcasting complaints of South Africa regulate media
On some levels, broadcasting regulation in South Africa, apart from spectrum and license issues, is managed in a remarkably similar way to the Press Council. [ ICASA’s Complaints and Compliance Committee actually has very little to do with rulings on the content offered to the public by the NAB. Last year, the BCSSA dealt with roughly 1800 complaints related to broadcaster’s content, while the CCC, which deals mainly with license contraventions, adjudicated nine cases in the year 2008/2009, according to their 2009 annual report and six in the 2009/2010 financial year, according to Paseka
Maleka of ICASA. The BCCSA looks at complaints in respect to the Code of Conduct for Broadcasters for those broadcasters who belong to the NAB, says Maleka. For those license holders who aren’t signatories of the NAB – a minority of broadcasters in South Africa - “non-compliance with content is adjudicated by CCC. In this case, there is a memorandum of understanding that exists between ICASA and BCCSA,” Maleka says. The fact that broadcasters require licenses, because spectrum is limited, also means that the two industries operate on quite different paradigms, says Kobus van Rooyen, chairperson of the BCC ]

How does the film and publication board control and regulate media
Weegy: The FPB is a statutory body established by the Films and Publications Act of 1996. It replaces the Directorate of Publications. [ The FPB’s task is mainly to classify films, videos, DVDs, computer games and certain publications for their suitable age viewership, and to provide you with enough information to make informed choices about what you and your children should or should not see. The FPB classifies all film material distributed in South Africa, except that shown on TV. Broadcasters have their own regulatory body. "Please note that limited information on the details of classifiable elements is available for films classified by the FPB prior to 2000. The entries under all classifiable elements for these films - language, violence etc,- will be designated as "none"."
