Comms Essentials - TCP Code

Wednesday 3 July 2019

Hosted by


This Communications Alliance Comms Essentials seminar will present an overview of the important new revisions to the Telecommunications Consumer Protections (TCP) Code.

The TCP Code was revised by an independently chaired Communications Alliance working committee consisting of representatives from industry, consumers, government, and regulators in an 18-month project. It was then submitted to the ACMA for registration by Communications Alliance. The ACMA is considering registration, following which RSPs will have one month to become compliant with the new Code.

The revised TCP Code will be published upon registration, prior to the Comms Essentials.

This seminar will provide an overview of key revisions to the Code and information on associated compliance and enforcement activities, including presentations from the ACMA and Communications Compliance. It will address key themes of consumer protection, and we will also invite questions and discussion.

Communications Alliance will also host, at a later date, a longer webinar to delve into the detailed changes and offer an opportunity to address specific questions from RSPs.

Please note: We will confirm this event with all registered guests – or notify them of cancellation if needed – on Friday 28 June, as it is dependent upon the registration of the Code by the ACMA.

Event attendance:

Communications Alliance members, all Retail Service Providers bound by the Code, and other stakeholders.

Please note: While Comms Essentials are typically offered only to Communications Alliance members, this event will be open to all interested parties.
