ACMA expands telco consumer forum


The Australian Communications and Media Authority has expanded its Consumer Consultative Forum, with the appointment of eight new members.

The organisations appointed to the forum by ACMA are:

  • Consumer Policy Research Centre
  • Country Womens’ Association of Australia
  • Deaf Australia
  • Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Council of Australia
  • LegalAid NSW
  • NSW Business Chamber
  • South Australian Council of Social Services
  • WEstjustice

Authority member, Fiona Cameron who leads the ACMA on Consumer Safeguards issues,  will chair the renewed CCF, joining standing members Australian Communications Consumer Action Network, Communications Alliance and Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association to discuss key telecommunications issues.

"Consumers face a range of issues when it comes to navigating the communications landscape," Cameron said.

“These new appointments will help industry and government better understand community needs.”

Cameron says the CCF will focus on a broad range of issues of interest to all communications consumers, including those faced with a disability, regional and remote communities as well as low income groups.

The ACMA has stated its strategic objective is to maximise the economic and social benefits of communications and media for Australia – and the CCF plays an important role in assisting the Authority to achieve a regulatory framework that anticipates change through monitoring our environment and influencing regulatory responses.
