Public Consultation on Proposed Amendments to the PEMA

12 May 2014

MDA is conducting public consultation on its proposed amendments to the Public Entertainments and Meetings Act (PEMA) to forge a co-regulatory partnership with the arts sectors.

A key objective of these amendments is to spur co-regulation by empowering arts entertainment event organisers to provide classification ratings for their own performances, such as plays, musicals and concerts, while being mindful of community standards and expectations. MDA is also proposing to update its regulatory powers, while ensuring the relevance of the legislation through administrative amendments.

A copy of the public consultation paper is available [here]

MDA invites interested parties to submit written comments on our proposals. Organisations submitting your comments can refer to page 21 of the consultation paper on the format requirements. Individuals may respond by email, but should include their full names and contact numbers in the response.

All responses should be submitted to MDA by 5pm, 30 May 2014, and addressed to:
