Australian Communication Industry Forum (ACIF)


This report was archived in September 2007 and has not been updated since June 2005. Industry self-regulation is central to the regulatory scheme established under the Telecommunications Act 1997. Established in 1997 by the telecommunications industry to implement and manage self-regulation, the role of the Australian Communications Industry Forum (ACIF) is to provide a neutral forum for the development of initiatives that foster the operation of competitive networks and the protection of consumer interests. A major focus has been on developing and administering industry codes and standards to foster competition and protect consumers. With regulatory and technical convergence, ACIF is increasingly facilitating industry self-regulatory responses to issues for which a codified/standardised response is premature – issues such as VoIP services and content delivered over telecommunications devices. This report provides an overview of the organisation and its work. The following is prepared from information supplied by the ACIF.
