France Télévisions, Arte France, Audiovisuel Extérieur de la France (AEF), INA, Radio France and TV5Monde have transformed former trade association SEPP into an association called Syndicat des Médias de Service Public (SMSP).

The new structure aims to better deal with the technological and industrial changes taking place in the sector and better represent the collective interests of PSB radio and TV groups, mostly from a social point of view.

SMSP will thus directly address national and European powers as well as French and European TV professional associations.
