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.
Arrangements are now locked in place with every Australian police force, creating a ‘national spine’ along which INHOPE’s member, the ACMA can make targeted and timely reports where there is evidence that child sexual abuse material has a connection with a particular jurisdiction. The ACMA can now report child sexual abuse content which appears to be produced, hosted in, or accessed from anywhere in Australia.
