The ACMA is seeking comment on its proposal to allow infringement notices to be issued if a provider fails to comply with an ACMA direction to join the TIO scheme. The proposal follows recommendations in the Reform of the Telecommunication Industry Ombudsman Report released by the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy in May 2012.

The ACMA seeks comments on this proposal by Sunday 23 December 2012.
