Consultation on Industry Code of Practice for Disinformation

Australia’s Digital Industry Group Inc (DIGI) has released a draft Australian Code of Practice on Disinformation for public consultation. The development of a code is one of the recommendations of the Government’s Digital Platforms Inquiry roadmap.

DIGI has drafted the code on behalf of digital platforms in Australia and is seeking submissions from interested parties by Tuesday, 24 November 2020.

The Australian government has asked the Australian Communications and Media Authority to oversee the development of the code and report to Government on the code and platforms’ performance against it by June 2021.

In June 2020, a public position paper was released to guide DIGI and digital platforms on the code development process. This position paper covered a series of our expectations, including the scope of the code and how it could be best administered, monitored, and assessed.
