About the ACMA
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (the ACMA) is a statutory authority within the Australian Government portfolio of Communications and the Arts.
As Australia’s media and communications regulator, we make sure that broadcasting, telecommunications and radiocommunications work for all Australians.
Each day, we all use numerous different devices and tools—television, radio, the internet, mobiles, tablets, landline, VoIP, SMS, apps, blogging and social media—for communication, information and entertainment. As the regulator, we don’t control these services and we don’t provide them. But we do make sure they’re available, reliable, fair and safe.
So, we’re in the sky and under the sea—from protecting underwater communications cables to licensing the airwaves, we have broad and far-reaching responsibilities.
We work with government and industry to establish requirements for organisations who provide or supply these services, and monitor these regulations to make sure they benefit the public.
We also provide consumer safeguards, education and information to help all Australians understand and be consulted about changes to our rapidly evolving media and communications environment.
