September 2023 interim report30 Sep 2023

On 27 November 2023, the ACCC released the seventh interim report for the Digital Platform Services Inquiry.

The report considers competition and consumer issues from the expanding ecosystems of digital platform providers in Australia. It uses smart home devices and consumer cloud storage solutions as examples to explore the impact of this expansion.

The report provides further evidence supporting the need for regulatory reform to address digital platform-related competition and consumer harms, as recommended in the September 2022 interim report of this inquiry.
