The present code has been elaborated with the intention to make values compatible: the freedom of expression with respect to the rights of the personality; interdiction of the violence; the discrimination and the intolerance, and the protection of the childhood and youth.

The code establishes a series of general principles to improve the effectiveness, within the included hour strip between the six and twenty-two hours, of the legal protection of the minors with respect to the television programmes that is emitted in this schedule.
