ALIA monitors the content of national radio stations, regional radio stations (transmission networks) and local radio stations

It pays particular attention to protecting minors from inappropriate content in radio programmes that may impair their physical, mental or moral development. It also monitors programmes to ensure that they do not contain any incitement to hatred based on race, sex, opinion, religion or nationality (Article 26bis of the Amended Law on Electronic Media). The Authority constantly monitors radio broadcasts for any violent, erotic or pornographic content and to ensure respect for human dignity.

At national level, ALIA monitors the content of the commercial radio stations RTL Radio Lëtzebuerg and L’essentiel Radio, as well as that of the public service station radio 100,7. For the latter it may make proposals to ensure that the content is balanced and reflects the station’s socio-cultural objectives.
