11 06 2019 - Media release

Screen Australia’s Code of Conduct replaced by Industry Code from 1 July 2019

Image

In April 2018, Screen Australia introduced a mandatory Code of Conduct to Prevent Sexual Harassment for all recipients of Screen Australia production funding.

Since that time, Screen Producers Australia (SPA) and the Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance (MEAA) have jointly developed and released the Australian Screen Industry Code of Practice: Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Harassment and Bullying.

A goal of the Screen Industry Code of Practice is to enable employers to have a consistent approach to these important issues across the entire Australian screen industry. As such, Screen Australia will require projects approved for production funding from 1 July 2019 onwards to implement the Screen Industry Code of Practice rather than the Screen Australia Code of Conduct.

Production companies must, so far as is reasonably practical, implement the Code of Practice as part of its obligations in the Screen Australia funding contract.

RESOURCES:

  • View the Australian Screen Industry Code of Practice: Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Harassment and Bullying on the MEAA or SPA website.
  • Access FAQs on the transition to the Screen Industry Code of Practice via Screen News.
