Roadmap consultation: Age verification and access to online pornography

AHISA’s submission draws attention to the roles and responsibilities of government and industry in the creation of safe digital environments and the protection of children and young people in those environments. The responsibilities of parents, education institutions and children are also discussed.
AHISA urges governments to extend to children similar protections in the digital world as are legislated in the real world. The submission argues that legislation and regulation of digital environments must seek to protect the social fabric of the nation as well as individuals.
