Regulatory issues are among the highest priorities for CASBAA. We actively undertake a number of regulatory initiatives in the Asia Pacific, including the pursuit of copyright enforcement, promotion of regional technical standards, lobbying activities, regulatory roundtables, and educational seminars.

CASBAA submits feedback to and maintains dialogue with government bodies and trade organizations on consultation papers for best interests of CASBAA members. CASBAA also collects and shares members’ papers and presentations which would be of interest to other members. These documents are placed in this section according to the nature of the issues and to the locations where the issues arise.

Regulators’ Roundtable

One of the highlights of CASBAA’s regulatory activities is a Regulators’ Roundtable, organized in conjunction with the annual CASBAA Convention.

CASBAA’s goal in holding the Roundtable at the same time as the Convention is to bring regulatory officials into contact with the effervescence of the industry, let them rub shoulders with executives from the various markets and from the regional corporate centers, and create opportunities for cross-pollination of ideas and mutual sharing of concerns.
