The ACMA is consulting on a proposal to:
- revoke and remake the Broadcasting Services Act 1992 – Determination of Class Licences (01/10/1992) (the Determination of Class Licences)
- allow the Broadcasting Services (Additional Conditions – Open Narrowcasting Radio Services) Notice 2002 (the Additional Conditions - Open Narrowcasting Radio Services Notice) to be repealed automatically without remaking the instrument.
The Determination of Class Licences will sunset on 1 October 2017 unless it is revoked and remade before this date. The ACMA proposes to remake the legislative instrument without any significant changes before 1 October 2017 so that its ongoing effect is preserved.
In addition, the ACMA is proposing to allow the Additional Conditions – Open Narrowcasting Radio Services Notice to sunset, that is, be repealed automatically without remaking it. The Notice is due to sunset on 1 April 2017. For the reasons set out in the consultation paper, the ACMA considers it appropriate that it be allowed to do so.
