The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has been undertaking an inquiry into Digital Platform Services since 2020.
Matters being considered by the Inquiry include competition in markets for the supply of digital platform services, practices of suppliers of digital platform services which may result in harm and how innovation and technology change may affect the nature and degree of market power and characteristics of digital platform services. The final report is due in 2025.
The fifth interim report was released on 11 November 2022 and provides recommendations to address competition and consumer issues. Treasury is seeking views on these recommendations and any associated regulatory reform in Australia.
