March 12, 2021 at 1:54 PM

From the NZFVC

Submissions are open on the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification (Urgent Interim Classification of Publications and Prevention of Online Harm) Amendment Bill. The deadline to make a submission is 1 April 2021.

The Governance and Administration Committee is calling for submissions on the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification (Urgent Interim Classification of Publications and Prevention of Online Harm) Amendment Bill. 

The deadline to make a submission is 1 April 2021.

This bill will update the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification Act 1993 to allow for urgent prevention and mitigation of harms caused by objectionable publications. It would:

  • "​make livestreaming of objectionable content a criminal offence
  • enable the Chief Censor to issue time-limited interim classification assessments of publications 
  • allow the issuing of take-down notices for objectionable online content
  • subject online content hosts to a civil pecuniary penalty if they do not comply with an issued take-down notice 
  • facilitate the set up of future mechanisms for blocking or filtering objectionable online content."
