Background

The Treasury Consultation Hub states that:

On 26 July 2019 the Treasurer and the Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts publicly released the final report of ACCC Digital Platforms Inquiry. They announced a 12 week public consultation process for all interested parties to provide their views on the recommendations to Government. The 12 week public consultation process has been divided into a 6 week period for interested parties to make submissions on the report with the remainder of the time to be used for targeted consultation meetings.

The report outlines 23 recommendations that respond to the substantial market power that has arisen through the growth of digital platforms, their impact on competition in media and advertising markets and implications for news media businesses, advertisers and consumers.
