2005年3月15日
广电总局向各省、自治区、直辖市广播影视局(厅)发出《广电总局关于进一步加强广播电视节目制作经营机构管理的通知》,通知说,《广播电视节目制作经营管理规定》(广电总局令第34号)实施以来,各地认真履行管理职责,严格审批广播电视节目制作经营机构,使全国的制作经营活动日趋规范,节目数量稳步增长,节目质量明显提高,节目制作产业发展格局初步形成。但也有个别地方在管理中存在审核把关不严和日常监管不到位等问题。根据中央领导同志有关重要批示精神,现就进一步加强对广播电视节目制作经营机构管理的事宜通知如下:
一、要按照《广播电视节目制作经营管理规定》(广电总局令第34号)的规定,严把行业准入关。34号令第六条已对制作企业的准入条件做了明确规定,各省级管理部门应严格掌握准入条件,认真履行审批职责,本着“保证质量,控制数量”的原则,对不符合申请条件的机构一律不得为其核发《广播电视节目制作经营许可证》。总局将结合对制作机构的2004年度业绩审核工作,对各地制作机构审批情况进行核查,对违反规定的机构,将责成相关发证机构撤销许可。
二、要加强对制作机构的日常监管工作。要切实扭转目前在广播电视节目制作经营机构管理中普遍存在的“只审批、不监管”的问题。为确保正确导向,各省级管理部门要建立对制作机构制作和发行节目内容的审查机制,完善节目审查标准,加强对制作机构制作和发行的节目内容质量的把关。凡发现制作、发行有不良内容节目、栏目的,要及时、坚决制止和纠正,对内容导向存在问题的制作机构,要严格依照相关规定予以处理;对造成严重不良社会反应的,要取消其节目制作资格。各省级管理部门要健全和完善制作机构业务档案和数据库,及时掌握制作机构的人员、节目导向、制作内容、财务、资产和经营情况,进行规范管理。
三、要加强制作机构的行业自律,积极引导制作机构提高创作能力、制作水平和节目质量。制作机构要坚持正确导向,把思想性、艺术性和观赏性有机统一起来;坚持把社会效益放在首位,努力实现社会效益和经济效益的统一;坚持为人民服务,为社会主义服务,做到贴近实际,贴近生活,贴近群众,确保节目内容健康向上,满足人民群众的精神文化需求。
四、要督促各级播出机构对非本台制作的节目、栏目内容和来源进行认真审查把关。各级管理部门要监督辖区内播出机构依据《广播电视管理条例》规定,定期向所在地广播电视行政部门备案外购节目情况,同时严格审查非本台制作的各类节目、栏目的内容和提供机构的资质,对于已经购买的未取得《广播电视节目制作经营许可证》机构制作或提供的节目要立即停止播出。坚决做到今后不再购买播放此类机构提供的节目。各省级管理部门要加大督查力度,发现违规问题要坚决查处,确保导向正确和播出安全。
五、要加强对制作机构人员的政策、法规教育和业务培训。各省级管理部门要将对制作机构主要管理人员和制作人员的培训作为一项制度加以落实,每年均需定期举办。应对辖区新设立的制作机构或两年内未参加过省级以上管理部门举办的业务培训的法定代表人及制作经营管理层人员进行培训,以增强从业人员的政治意识、责任意识、大局意识和依法经营的观念。同时将各机构人员接受培训的情况纳入当年业绩审核内容进行考核,对无故不参加培训的,将视情况给予警告、暂停直至撤销制作许可的处理。
请将本通知及时转发所辖区域各相关机构,并认真执行。
