ABC and SBS complaints handling

On 11 November 2021, under Standing Order 25(2)(a)(v), the Senate Environment and Communications Legislation Committee agreed to inquire into the complaints handling arrangements of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and the Special Broadcasting Service.

In particular, the committee agreed to examine the adequacy of the existing arrangements to provide a framework that is accessible, responsive, efficient, accountable and fit-for-purpose.

On 23 November 2021 the Senate directed the committee to suspend the inquiry until the independent review of the ABC’s complaints system has been completed.

The committee’s inquiry will resume once the independent review of the ABC’s complaints system has been completed.
