Community Radio Broadcasting Codes of Practice - Review


Community Radio Broadcasting Codes of Practice - Review  


Thank you to all broadcasters and organisations who contributed to the Codes of Practice Review.
Feedback to the consulation is now closed.

The draft Codes were placed on exhibition from 27 October 2022 to 15 December 2022 and from 28 September 2023 to 26 October 2023. The revised Codes incorporate feedback from the first and second rounds of public consultation and ongoing dialogue with the ACMA and stakeholders. 

It is hoped that the revised Codes will be clearer, more flexible, and less onerous for stations to comply with. View the revised Codes here (PDF icon PDFFile DOCX).

As the sector organisation representing the majority of licensees, the CBAA is obligated to coordinate a periodic review of the Codes to reflect changing community standards and remain relevant in the contemporary media environment.

What will happen next  

The revised Codes of Practice are progressing through a review by the Australian Communications and Media Authority, which involves a review by the Office of Impact Analysis. Once approved, the Codes and accompanying guidance material will be published on the CBAA website. Stations will have a period of time to adopt changes before the Codes come into force.
