5. The regulatory and classification framework needs to be responsive to technological change and adaptive to new technologies, platforms and services
The ALRC is interested in your thoughts about the extent to which a revised National Classification Scheme can be more adaptive to new technologies, platforms and services.
The ALRC has been asked to make recommendations about revising the national classification scheme in light of the rapid pace of technological change. The significance of technological change is also a critical issue for the Convergence Review that is also currently taking place.
A very strong message coming through from submissions received so far has been that we need to move away from simply trying to adapt the existing classification framework to new technological developments, and instead frame guidelines in such a way as to be adaptive to future trends.
