Communications Alliance Calls for Input to Review of Guideline G660:2018, Assisting Customers Experiencing Domestic and Family Violence

The Guideline is a reference document for how providers can assist customers who are experiencing domestic or family violence. It was published in October 2018, and provides a range of methods and tools providers can consider, in addition to education for everyone in the telecommunications industry on the types and impacts of domestic and family violence.

Communications Alliance will begin revising the document at the beginning of 2020. While the revision will be a consultative process, this input is vital to direct its scope and focus.

We are seeking input on experiences using the Guideline by both telecommunications suppliers and consumers, new information or practices to consider, or recommended changes. We welcome input from all relevant parties, including consumers, specialists in domestic and family violence services, law enforcement, and industry.

The current Guideline can be found here: https://www.commsalliance.com.au/Documents/all/guidelines/G660

To submit your input, you can use the Submit Comments form on our website, or send input or questions via email to info@commsalliance.com.au.

THE CALL FOR INPUT CLOSED AT 5:00 P.M. (AEST) ON FRIDAY 10 JANUARY 2020.
