The ABC has released a Public Consultation Paper and details of the submission process for the Independent Review of the ABC’s editorial self-regulatory system and complaints handling.
The Consultation Paper has been written by Professor John McMillan AO, and Jim Carroll, the independent reviewers appointed by the ABC Board. It includes the terms of reference for the process and comprehensive details of the framework they are conducting the review within.
The review commenced in October 2021. The reviewers have already held initial consultations with current and former ABC staff, ABC Board members and external observers in Australia and overseas.
The Consultation Paper is being published to invite public comments and submissions on the issues being considered. Consultations will continue throughout this process.
This review welcomes written submissions on any of the Terms of Reference or Key Issues as set out in the Consultation Paper.
