ACMA to review codes

Staff Writer

The ACMA are about to begin the process of reviewing its codes which may see increased punishment for broadcasters who break them.

ACMA's chairman and chief executive Chris Chapman told Sky Business:

"We have a sense there is probably too much regulation built in there. So we want to strip it all back and say what's really important to the community: on fairness and factual accuracy, on classifications, on privacy, on advertising."

An issues paper will be released in the next few months and the ACMA will then seek submissions from all interested stakeholders, including all major TV and radio networks. A draft of the final report will then be released before the end of the year.
