The ACCC will consider whether there is a need for regulatory reform to address the competition and consumer concerns identified in digital platform services markets to date.
This report is the fifth interim report for the Digital Platform Services Inquiry and marks the mid-point of this Inquiry. It will consider:
- competition and consumer issues identified in the course of the Digital Platform Services Inquiry to date
- competition and consumer issues identified in the Digital Advertising Services Inquiry and Digital Platforms Inquiry 2017-2019 (to the extent these matters fall within the scope of the Digital Platform Services Inquiry)
- whether there is a need for sector specific regulation to address these issues and supplement Australia’s competition and consumer law, and if so, what these changes could include.
This report is due to be provided to the Treasurer by 30 September 2022.
