Communications Alliance Welcomes Revised TCP Code

Communications Alliance welcomes the registration of a revised Telecommunications Consumer Protections Code, by the Australian Communications and Media Authority.

The revised code acts to streamline elements of the ways that information is provided to telecommunications consumers. The revision also removes some areas of duplication in the previous code.

Communications Alliance CEO John Stanton thanked the ACMA staff and Authority for their constructive efforts throughout the revision of the code.

“Industry had hoped to achieve even more substantial reform as part of this revision but the co-regulatory process necessarily involves a reflection of the priorities of a range of stakeholders including consumers, regulators, industry and others.”

National Innovation & Science

Communications Alliance has welcomed the National Innovation and Science Agenda unveiled by Prime Minister Turnbull this week.

“It is a broad-ranging package of reforms and initiatives that demonstrably follows through on the Prime Minister’s commitment to put development of a new innovation-culture at the centre of the nation’s economic prospects,” said Communications Alliance CEO, John Stanton.

“The fact that the Opposition is of a similar mindset is encouraging and creates the potential for an enduring digital economy policy platform."

“Communications Alliance stands ready to engage with Government and all political parties, – and indeed we see potential for strong cooperation and interaction with the innovation policy package through the Internet of Things (IoT) initiative launched by Comms Alliance early in 2015."

“National regulatory and policy innovation will be needed to ensure that Australia can enable and harvest the benefits of the emerging IoT revolution, rather than risk being a loser left in the wake of the disruption.”
