Draft Community Radio Broadcasting Codes of Practice open for consultation


The Community Radio Broadcasting Codes of Practice are being reviewed for the first time since 2008, and are now open for public consultation.

The consultation period began this week and ends on Thursday, December 15.

Those seeking to comment are invited to find the draft Codes here and can comment both individually and on behalf of their organisation.

The Codes are reviewed periodically to reflect changing community standards and remain relevant in the contemporary media environment. It is hoped that the revised Codes will be clearer, more flexible, and less onerous for stations to comply with.

The Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA), as the peak body representing the greatest number of community broadcasting licenses in Australia, is leading the redrafting of the Codes.

Those seeking to respond to the Codes will be able to answer a short online survey or provide a written submission.
