ACCAN recently made a submission to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications consultation on the Online Safety (Basic Online Safety Expectations) Determination 2021 exposure draft. The consultation provided an opportunity to comment on the government’s expectations on how online services should pro-actively act to protect Australians from online harm and abuse.

In-principle, ACCAN supports the draft Determination however, we highlighted that several of the enforcement mechanisms lack rigor and are unlikely to result in the intended outcome of greater protection for online service users.
