ACCAN recently made a submission to the eSafety Restricted Access System (RAS) consultation. The consultation sought feedback on how the new RAS can best balance both the policy objective of keeping children and young people safe online, while not placing unnecessary financial or administrative burden on industry.

ACCAN made a number of recommendations including that Australian consumers would benefit from an independent body tasked with reviewing age verification practices and RAS compliance on all social media services, designated internet services and relevant electronic services – email, messaging services, chat services, online gaming - that are providing access to material from Australia, as well as Australian hosting service providers.
