Remaking of Determination under paragraph (c) of the definition of “broadcasting service”
Remaking of sunsetting instrument without significant amendments – Department of Communications and the Arts
On 18 September 2019, the Department of Communications and the Arts remade the Determination under paragraph (c) of the definition of “broadcasting service” (No. 1 of 2000) under the Broadcasting Services Act 1992 without significant amendment for a period of three years.
This renamed determination - Broadcasting Services ('Broadcasting service' definition - Exclusion) Determination 2019 – continues to provide that live streamed television and radio programs delivered using the Internet are excluded from the definition of a ‘broadcasting service’ under the Broadcasting Services Act 1992.
Consistent with Government’s best practice regulation requirements for sunsetting instruments, the Department has assessed the Determination as operating effectively and efficiently. Therefore, a Regulation Impact Statement is not required for remaking this instrument without significant amendments.
