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.
You can submit responses to this consultation up until 15 February 2023. Interested parties are invited to comment on this consultation.
While submissions may be lodged electronically or by post, electronic lodgement is preferred. For accessibility reasons, please submit responses sent via email in a Word or RTF format. An additional PDF version may also be submitted.
