​The Australian Broadcasting Authority (ABA) assists the different sectors of the television, radio and Internet industries to develop codes of practice relating to content and complaints handling and investigates complaints about inappropriate content on broadcasting services and the Internet.

The ABA administers a 'co-regulatory' scheme for Internet content. The scheme aims to address community concerns about offensive and illegal material on the Internet and, in particular, to protect children from exposure to material that is unsuitable for them.

Members of the public may complain to the ABA about Internet content (including Internet gambling content), which is, or may be, prohibited by law. If the Internet content is determined to be offensive then a “take down” order may be served on the offending Internet content host.​
