ALIA submission in response to the Australian Government Online Safety Legislation Reform Discussion Paper, February 2020

Creator

Description

The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Australian Government’s Online Safety Legislative Reform Discussion Paper and applauds the move to bring together existing measures in a single framework and supports the expansion of the role of the Office of the eSafety Commissioner. However, there are specific areas of concern regarding the legislation in relation to library accountability, digital content, reporting requirements, and the relationship with other legislative reform.
 
ALIA and our library members are generally in favour of the approach to Online Safety Legislative Reform described in the Discussion Paper but we appreciate the opportunity to voice our specific concerns and look forward to further involvement as the consultation moves into the next phase.
