Codes of practice

The ACMA registered the community radio broadcasting code of practice for community radio licensees on 23 October 2008. The code was developed by the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA), working with the community radio sector in consultation with the former ABA and the public.

The ACMA registered the community television codes of practice for community television broadcasting licensees in 2011. The codes were developed by the Australian Community Television Alliance (ACTA), working with the community television sector, and in consultation with the former ABA and the public.
