Regulation Impact Statement – Department of Communications and the Arts
On 6 December 2017, the Government introduced the Communications Legislation Amendment (Online Content Services and Other Measures) Bill 2017.
Among other measures, the bill imposes additional restrictions on gambling promotions during live coverage of sporting events provided on broadcast, subscription and online platforms.
The Department of Communications and the Arts prepared a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS), which was assessed by the Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) as compliant and best practice under the Governments RIS requirements.
