Convergence Review Committee calls for public input

Thursday, 28 April, 2011

Submissions are open for public input into the Australian federal government’s review of the country’s media and communications regulatory framework.

The Convergence Review Committee today released a framing paper detailing the committee’s initial thinking on a number of principles relevant to the discussion and invited comment from the public on the document.

“Before we engage fully in our consultations, we need to ensure we have the right starting point. We also want to hear the issues that stakeholders feel are important for the review to consider,” Committee Chair Glen Boreham said.

Boreham said it was important to get opinions and ideas from both industry and the wider Australian public.

“We want to hear from a broad range of Australians, so I encourage everyone with an interest in the review to contribute,” he said.

Submissions in response to the framing paper can be emailed to the Convergence Review Secretariat, or entered via the website of the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy.

The closing date for submissions is 10 June 2011.
