Taiwan's National Communications Commission (NCC) is to relax restrictions on the import or export of television and radio programmes, in line with the spirit of the International Covenant on Civic and Political Rights (ICCPR).

Authorities will no longer need to give permission ahead of local broadcast of foreign shows, with the exception of shows originating in Mainland China, which will still need to be first inspected by the Ministry of Culture.

The NCC is in the process of updating outdated policies within Taiwan's Radio and Television Act, which was passed in 1976, according to the China Post.
