What audiences want – Audience expectations for content safeguards

A position paper for professional content providers

This position paper provides our views on what safeguards Australian audiences expect when they consume media, whether that be on TV, radio, in print or online. It also discusses the key principles underpinning effective self- and co-regulatory arrangements.

Broadcasters and other providers of professional content should find this paper relevant and useful when considering, developing and reviewing their respective industry codes or other mechanisms that set out acceptable practices and content protections for Australian audiences.

We welcome opportunities to engage more broadly with professional content providers across industry about the approaches outlined in this paper and other ideas for strengthening and harmonising content safeguards.
