ACMA completes mobile premium services determinations review

By

The telecommunications industry regulator, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), has completed its sunset review of mobile premium services determinations.

The determinations regulate the supply of mobile premium services (MPS) by carriage service providers (CSPs). MPS include ringtones, games, music, chats, news, voting and entry to competitions.

In an announcement on Wednesday, the ACMA said it had completed its review of the Telecommunications Service Provider (Mobile Premium Services) Determination 2010 (No. 1) and Telecommunications Service Provider (Mobile Premium Services) Determination 2010 (No. 2).

The ACMA said that changes in the mobile content industry have reduced the need for some protections in the MPS determinations, including the withdrawal of many MPS and low complaint numbers.

“However, the requirement in MPS Determination (No. 1) that CSPs allow customers to bar MPS remains an important consumer protection,” the ACMA said.

“We have decided to allow the MPS determinations to cease on their sunset date of 1 April 2021.

“We have also registered a variation to the industry’s MPS Code that requires carriage service providers to allow customers to bar MPS. Registration of the varied code allows the ACMA to enforce the new requirements.”
