It was established in 2001 with the aim of producing permanent solutions to the problems of radio and television broadcasting, monitoring and protecting the rights arising from the Law on Intellectual and Artistic Works No. 5846.
Following its establishment, RATEM took action quickly within the framework of a very intense program, carried out the necessary work to achieve the goals it had set, and united the radio and television broadcasters under the same roof. With the project activities it carried out, it managed to become the voice of the entire publishing industry, with the support of not only its members, but also national, regional and local broadcasters.
In our country, there are a total of 252 television companies, 23 national, 16 regional and 213 local, and 1090 radio companies, 36 national, 102 regional and 952 local, which have applied for a license to the Radio and Television Supreme Council to broadcast in terrestrial media. 800 of these radio and television organizations are members of RATEM.
