GRTU’s incessant work on LN103/2016 has led to a six-week consultation period which shall be putting forward constructive proposals as to how the advertising, signage and billboard sectors ought to be regulated in a fair and logical manner which makes sense for the regulator but which is practical on the ground.
Members from the signage and sign-writing sector within GRTU have been actively meeting throughout these weeks to tackle the core issues of the law and propose a system which would regulate efficiently and effectively
without harming business. With an increasing number of members from the sector joining GRTU, the need has been felt to set up a fully-fledged association for the signage and sign-writing sector within the structures of GRTU.
In parallel to the sector’s work on the proposals for the new law meetings are being held to draft a statute and devise a work-plan for the new association. The association’s main aims shall be to promote and widen the sector, to set standards and guidelines for the sector, and to raise the quality of service within the sector as a whole.
In addition to the signage and sign-writing sector, GRTU has also welcomed billboard operators as a separate new sector. GRTU already represented operators within the billboard sector but with more members joining a new section has been set up specifically for this sector. These GRTU members are working well hand-inhand to respect the agreement reached with the Government regarding billboards as well as commencing discussions to set proposals for the new law from the perspective of billboard owners.
