Australia: new national network for reporting online child sexual abuse content

July 30, 2014

Australian efforts against the trade in online child sexual abuse material have been significantly strengthened with the finalisation of formal agreements earlier this week between the Australian Communications and Media Authority and the police forces of Queensland and Victoria.

The ACMA can now report child sexual abuse content which appears to be produced, hosted in, or accessed from anywhere in Australia.
