The Issue
Consultation Period:  April 15, 2020 09:00 AEST to June 12, 2020 17:00 AEST

On 12 December 2019, the Government released its response and implementation roadmap to the ACCC's Digital Platforms Inquiry. In its response, the Government committed to a staged process to reform media regulation towards to a platform-neutral regulatory framework covering both online and offline delivery of media content to Australian consumers.

The Government identified Australian content obligations as one of the first issues it would focus on and that it would release an options paper co-authored by the ACMA and Screen Australia to look at how best to support Australian stories on our screens in a modern, multi-platform environment.

This paper has now been released for a two-month consultation period. The Government will work with industry to further explore the issues facing the media and screen production sectors.
