Key documents

The issue

The Broadcasting Services (Primary Commercial Television Broadcasting Service) Declaration is due to sunset on 1 October 2020. We are proposing to remake the declaration, with minor updates to its schedules.

The declaration is required under clause 41G of Schedule 4 of the Broadcasting Services Act 1992.

The declaration formally sets out the ‘primary service’ for each of the commercial TV networks in a licence area. A primary service has special obligations compared to other services. These relate to:

  • content
  • captioning
  • media diversity
  • other responsibilities.
