Under the Broadcasting Services Act 1992, each section of the broadcasting industry is required to develop codes of practice, in consultation with the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). A further requirement is that members of the public must be given an adequate opportunity to comment on the codes.
The Codes are subject to review every three years. In the fourth such review, which concluded in 2011, the Codes were amended slightly to include or improve provisions relating to privacy, advertising standards and the handling of complaints.
ANRAs updated Codes have been accepted and registered by ACMA and may be viewed by clicking the link below:
