Remaking of sunsetting instrument without significant amendments – Department of Communications and the Arts

The Do Not Call Register Regulations 2006 are being remade without significant amendment. The regulations are made under the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 and are scheduled to sunset on 1 April 2017.

The Do Not Call Register is a secure database where individuals and some organisations can register, check or remove their Australian telephone number to opt out of receiving most unsolicited telemarketing calls.

The Department of Communications and the Arts has certified that the instrument in consultation with affected stakeholders is operating effectively and efficiently. In accordance with the Government’s best practice regulation requirements where a Department has certified that an instrument is operating effectively and efficiently a Regulation Impact Statement is not required for the instrument to be remade.
