The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has launched public consultations on amendments to Telecommunications (Emergency Call Service) Determination 2019. The ACMA plans to amend the Telecommunications (Emergency Call Service) Determination 2019 (ECS Determination) in response to issues raised by the Senate Standing Committee for the Scrutiny of Delegated Legislation. These issues are the incorporation of documents by reference which are not available to the public; as well as the use of 'no-invalidity' clauses.
