European Framework for Safer Mobile Use by Younger Teenagers and Children
Entry into force:
Type of document:
Fifteen signatories have signed the EU-wide Framework, which puts forward recommendations to ensure that younger teenagers and children can safely access content on their mobile phones. The Framework will facilitate the roll-out of national voluntary agreements by highlighting approaches that have already been implemented successfully by the mobile provider and content communities in a number of EU Member States.
Specific approaches addressed by this EU-wide Framework include:
- access control mechanisms,
- classification of commercial content,
- fighting illegal content on the Internet,
- raising awareness and education.
The content of the Framework was deliberated at a series of high-level group meetings co-ordinated by GSM Europe under the auspices of the European Commission.
