Community Broadcasting Participation Guidelines

ArtSound is licensed under the Broadcasting Services Act 1992 (the Act) to provide a music and arts radio service to the Canberra community. Our licence is for a period of five years, and is renewed every five years subject to the approval of a renewal application submitted by the association. As a community broadcaster, some of the conditions of our licence include the requirement that the service is operated by the community for the community, and not as a profitable enterprise.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority, ACMA, is responsible for administering the Act, including ensuring community broadcasters comply with their licence conditions. After several rounds of community consultation, ACMA has now released its Community Broadcasting Participation Guidelines June 2010 to provide applicants for community radio licences and existing licensees with general guidance on how ACMA views these obligations and how it will interpret them in relation to the granting and renewing of community radio licences.

You can download the Guidelines from the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia website.
