(1)This section applies in the case of conditions falling within section 75(2) which have been set by OFCOM in relation to a particular person (“the system provider”).

(2)OFCOM must not give effect to a proposal to modify or revoke any of the conditions unless—

(a)they have carried out an analysis for the purpose of determining in accordance with this Chapter whether that person is or remains a person on whom SMP services conditions are capable of being imposed;

(b)they have determined in consequence of that analysis that he is not; and

(c)they are satisfied that the modification or revocation will not have an adverse effect on any or all of the matters mentioned in subsection (3).

(3)Those matters are—

(a)the accessibility to any persons of services that are for the time being included in the list of must-carry services in section 64;

(b)the prospects for effective competition in the market for programme services provided by being broadcast or otherwise transmitted in digital form; and

(c)the prospects for effective competition in the markets for conditional access systems and other associated facilities.

(4)In this section “conditional access system” has the same meaning as in section 75.
