Broadcaster compliance with TV content standards

All commercial TV licensees must broadcast Australian content as part of their licence.

Each year, broadcasters need to show whether they have met the:

  • Australian content quotas set in the Broadcasting Services Act 1992
  • Australian Content Standard
  • Children’s Television Standards

The standards contain quotas for genre-specific content, including:

  • Australian dramas and documentaries
  • Australian children's drama and other children’s programs
  • Australian preschool programs

We use the information broadcasters give us to create annual compliance reports.
