: Log 1: Making a determination on whether a television station has incorrectly classified a broadcast program (Australian Communications and Media Authority)

Title: Log 1: Making a determination on whether a television station has incorrectly classified a broadcast program
The FOI request sought access to documents used by the Content Classification Section of the ACMA (within the last two years) when making a determination on whether a television station has incorrectly classified a broadcast program (where those documents are not already in the public domain). The request specifically included material used in training staff at the ACMA. Five documents were released to the applicant. Three were released in full, and two were partially released, subject to the redaction of information in relation to which the ACMA is exempt from the operation of the FOI Act, under subsection 7(2) of that Act and Part II of Schedule 2 to the Act. These documents are 'exempt documents' within the meaning of the FOI Act. The documents contain detailed information which is likely to facilitate access to offensive internet content which is exempt under the FOI Act. The ACMA redacted the exempt material from the documents under section 22 of the FOI Act and the rest of the documents were released.
Note: Please see the Warning in Row 4 before viewing the documents.
