Abstract (Rezumat în limba engleză): This study presents an analysis regarding the implementation of the system of warning signals attached to the TV programs (signalectique) by the major Romanian TV channels and an assessment of the compliance with this system of the Romanian children and teenagers (7-10, 11-14, 15-18 years old), taking into account the results of a national survey based on questionnaire. If the compliance with the signalization and classification system of TV programs is, in principle, assimilated by the major televisions from Romania, in the context of a poor parental control, of a progressive personalization of TV viewing and of a profound absence of involvement of the educational institutions (school, high school) in the minors’ TV consume, the degree of non-compliance with the signalization system among the minors is alarming high. There are a lot of children and teenagers which simply ignore the „signalectique” and watch not recommended/forbidden TV programs (most of the teenagers (15-18 years old) and a consistent part of the children under 14).
