Safer Online Services and Media Platforms

What is Safer Online Services and Media Platforms (SOSMP)?

In June, The Department of Internal Affairs released a discussion document called Safer Online Services and Media Platforms (SOSMP). It represents a key step towards the development of a new, consistent regulatory system that aims to reduce people’s exposure to harmful online content, and create a system that is easier to navigate if people need to report harmful content. The document sets out proposed reforms to the way media and online platforms are regulated in Aotearoa.
