About this inquiry

The reasons for the referral are that the removal of auditing requirements for Australian content has the potential to significantly impact the amount of Australian content in the local broadcast media landscape. In addition, there are significant concerns over the legislation's changes to captioning requirements. Both have the potential to significantly impact the viewing experience of Australian television content for local audiences.
