Free TV Australia has announced the commencement of the consultation period on the new draft provisions of the Commercial Television Industry Code of Practice relating to gambling advertising during live sporting events.

The new provisions further restrict gambling advertising during live sports following discussions with the Government.

Free TV Acting CEO Pamela Longstaff said, “Free TV is committed to ensuring that the Code meets community expectations, including in relation to gambling advertising.

“These significant restrictions will prevent gambling advertising being broadcast during live sports at times that children are likely to be watching.

“Of course, to be effective, these safeguards must apply consistently across all platforms including online,” Ms Longstaff said.

The draft gambling provisions of the Code are open for public comment until 15 December 2017. They must then be approved by the Australian Communications and Media Authority before they come into effect in March 2018.

Public comments can be submitted to Free TV either by post to 44 Avenue Road, Mosman NSW 2088 or email to contact@freetv.com.au.

Full details of the consultation process including the draft provisions can be accessed here.
