Regulator approves new rules restricting online gambling advertising Featured

By

New rules restricting gambling advertising during live sport streamed online have now been approved by the broadcasting and telecommunications regulator, the Australian Communications and Media Authority.  

Under the Broadcasting Services (Online Content Service Provider Rules) 2018, the new rules — scheduled to come into effect on 28 September — prohibit gambling advertising during live sport that is streamed online between 5am and 8.30pm. All other times, gambling advertising is also restricted.

The ACMA developed the rules in line with the Australian Government’s policy of stronger restrictions on gambling advertising during live sport, with associated enabling legislation coming into effect on 12 April this year.  

“This is the first time that online services streaming live sport have been required to comply with gambling advertising restrictions,’ said ACMA chair Nerida O’Loughlin.

The new rules have been developed after the ACMA conducted two rounds of consultation, making changes to previous draft rules based on feedback and comments from stakeholders.

The ACMA says it will closely monitor operation of the new rules and, after 12 months, will consider whether to conduct a formal review of their effectiveness.
