Australian Communications and Media Authority

The purpose of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) is to maximise the economic and social benefits of communications and media for Australia.

We do this by fostering a communications and media environment that balances the needs of industry and the Australian community through regulation, education and advice. We provide consumer and audience safeguards; undertake compliance monitoring, investigations and enforcement; manage Australia’s spectrum and respond to changes in our environment by promoting fit for purpose regulatory frameworks.

By engaging with consumers, industry and government to shape and apply the regulatory framework in the public interest, we encourage and promote an innovative communications and media sector.

This work underpins our vision: a connected, informed, entertained Australia.
