AUSTRIA
R128 in place with -23LUFS, true peak not exceeding -3dBFS on all national networks such as ORF, ATV, PULS4, SERVUSTV;
for any material longer than 2 minutes (e.g. shows, documentary) loudness range must not be greater than 15LU (in stereo) or 20LU (in 5.1).

local (province) stations may vary, so far I know that TIROLTV is still at 0dbFS.
ServusTV is all -23LUFS, TP not exceeding -1, no LRA that I know of, and I'm mixing shows for ServusTV all day long for the last weeks.

Never mixed anything with an LRA even close to that for ServusTV. I freelance for the company setting all the standards for ServusTV though, and there was never any LRA mentioned.

I had stuff peaking above -3dBTP though and that was never rejected.
