  • How do I lodge a complaint?

    You need to lodge a complaint with the broadcaster in the first instance (unless you are complaining about a privacy issue on its own or about an election item).

    Click on the button below to learn about making a complaint.

    Make a Complaint


    Note! If you wish to make a complaint about an advertisement on TV, radio or in print (including magazines and billboards), please visit the Advertising Standards Authority website.

    (For a list of other agencies dealing with complaints, see the Complaint Line website.)

  • Already made a complaint?

    You've already made a formal complaint to the broadcaster and you’re not happy with their decision? The broadcaster hasn't replied to your formal complaint within 20 working days?

    If either of these is the case, you can refer your complaint to the BSA for review.
