The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) is calling for the public and the industry to get involved in the review of its codes.

The ACMA has released an issues paper asking for feedback on if broadcasting regulation is keeping up with changes in society and what should be included in the broadcasting codes of practice.

Chris Chapman (pictured), ACMA chairman, said: “This is a groundbreaking opportunity for people to get involved and make sure their views are heard.”

“We feel the time has come to take a “first principles” look at what contemporary codes of practice really need to address. We also want to know how community attitudes may be changing in relation to these components.”

Public submissions to the paper will be accepted until mid-july 2013 with the ACMA also hosting a series ‘Citizen Conversations’.

The series, conducted throughout June for free at the ACMA’s Sydney office, will relate to topics in the issues paper and will also be webcast.
