On 11 November 2022, the ACCC released the fifth interim report for the Digital Platform Services inquiry.

The report considers competition and consumer issues identified in the course of the Digital Platform Services Inquiry, the ACCC’s Digital Advertising Services Inquiry and the original Digital Platforms Inquiry.

The ACCC recommends a range of new measures to address harms from digital platforms to Australian consumers, small businesses and competition. In addition to consumer and competition specific recommendations for digital platforms, the report also reiterates the ACCC’s support for economy-wide reforms to consumer law.
