Mandatory ISP Filtering Consultation Paper
About the discussion paper
[From the Department website]
As part of the introduction of Internet Service Provider (ISP) filtering, the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, has made a commitment to consult publicly on the process that leads to Refused Classification (RC) material being placed on the RC content list for the purposes of mandatory ISP filtering and how those decisions can be reviewed. Additional transparency and accountability processes that are adopted would, as far as practicable, also apply to material put on the RC content list from overseas lists of child abuse material obtained from highly reputable overseas agencies.
Public comment is invited on the options set out in the consultation paper for increasing accountability and transparency of the RC content list.
