QLD community radio investigations | ACMA

QLD community radio investigations

From 1998 until the end of 2013, the ACMA and its predecessor, the Australian Broadcasting Authority, published broadcasting investigation reports in state-by-state tables for commercial television, commercial radio and community radio and in tables for all other broadcasting sectors (for example, ABC radio, subscription television and narrowcasting radio).

These tables as well as tables of broadcastiing investigation reports published by the ACMA year by year from 2005 are available (radio investigations here and television investigations here).

Prior to August 2008, only breach reports were published in full. Summaries of non-breach reports prior to August 2008 can be found in ACMA annual reports.
