ICAA is an active supporter of the Film Exhibition and Distribution Code of Conduct. The Code, as it is known, provides a framework for business relations between exhibitors and distributors.
The code came into existence following Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) enquiries into business practices in the exhibition and distribution industries in 1997.
The Code is a voluntary mechanism but has the support of nearly 100% of the industry.
The ongoing effectiveness and relevance of The Code is administered by The Film Code of Conduct Administrative Committee (FEDCAC) which is composed of representatives from major distribution, independent distribution and major circuit exhibition. Independent exhibition is represented by ICAA having two seats on the committee.
