Senator Stephen Conroy announced that the government will be introducing various measures to accompany the introduction of ISP filtering of Refused Classification content.According to Senator Conroy, the suite of measures was developed with input from the public consultation on options for transparency and accountability measures relating to the placement of material on the RC content list to be blocked by ISPs.

This suite of measures include:

  • an annual review of the RC Content list by an independent expert who will be appointed in consultation with industry;
  • clear avenues for appeal of classification decisions;  
  • that all content identified on the basis of a public complaint be classified by the Classification Board under the National Classification Scheme; and 
  • that affected parties have the ability to have decisions reviewed by the Classification Review Board;

Senator Conroy said, “The RC content list of URLs provides direct access to child abuse material so it cannot be published the way a list of prohibited book titles or movies can be. The public needs to have confidence that the URLs on the list, and the process by which they get there, is independent, rigorous, free from interference or influence and enables content and site owners access to appropriate review mechanisms.”

“Some sections of the community have expressed concern about whether the range of material included in the RC category, under the National Classification Scheme, correctly reflects current community standards,” continued Conroy.

“In order to address these concerns, the Government will recommend a review of the RC classification to State and Territory Ministers, be conducted at the earliest opportunity. The review would examine the current scope of the existing RC classification, and whether it adequately reflects community standards.”

“As the Government’s mandatory ISP filtering policy is underpinned by the strength of our classification system, the legal obligation to commence mandatory ISP filtering will not be imposed until the review is completed,” concluded Conroy.
