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.
