The Australian Communications and Media Authority has released its first Quarterly Snapshot, providing provisional headline information and data about its:

  • broadcasting, radiofrequency spectrum, telecommunications and unsolicited communications complaints, investigations and compliance work
  • allocation and licencing regulatory work
  • activities supporting the nbn and the government’s regulation reform agenda
  • stakeholder survey feedback
  • new ACMA’s Customer Service Centre.

‘Understanding the broad sweep of the ACMA’s responsibilities can be a challenge,’ said ACMA Chairman, Chris Chapman. ‘We have a complex regulatory remit spanning some 26 Acts and around 400 regulatory instruments. So to help our broad and varied stakeholders gain a wider appreciation about the range of our day-to-day regulatory activities, we’ve developed a quarterly snapshot headlined by an infographic.

‘Essentially, this report for the September quarter provides an “at-a-glance” feel for the range of our activities, an insight that can sometimes be lost by our numerous stakeholders in the specifics of day-to-day engagement within the broadcasting, radiocommunications, telecommunications and internet industries,’ Mr Chapman added.
