Codes of Practice
In accordance with Code 8 of the Community Radio Codes of Practice, to ensure that the Codes continue to reflect changing community standards and remain relevant in the contemporary media environment, the community radio sector, as coordinated by the sector organisation representing the majority of licensees, will review the Codes every three to five years in consultation with other sector organisations.
This review is currently underway. The CBAA will soon release a document for public comment as part of the final stage of consultation to the Codes of Practice Review.
A submission of the revised Codes of Practice will then be made by the CBAA Board to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (the ACMA) for its approval and registration under the Broadcasting Services Act 1992.
If you have any queries about the Community Radio Broadcasting Codes of Practice Review, please contact the CBAA.
