Analyst: Kylie Wansink


The Australian Broadcasting Authority (ABA) and Australian Communications Authority (ACA) are responsible for regulating the broadcasting spectrum in Australia, which includes radio broadcasting. Analogue radio services must be planned in geographical terms, and licences allocating in relation to these Licence Area Plans (LAPs). Like TV, radio is subject to a co-regulatory regime governing content in the form of codes of practice and ABA standards. Different regulations apply to the niche narrowcasting services however. The ABA clarified its intentions for analogue planning in September 2003.
