Internal Dispute Resolution Program and Code Compliance Program

18.1 Each of the major exhibitors and each distributor that is a member of the Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia will put into place (and advertise internally) an internal dispute resolution procedure (which will include details of the website maintained by the Code Secretariat relating to the Code and the name or position of the person within the organisation designated to deal with those disputes in the first instance) and a program for monitoring compliance with that procedure (an Internal Dispute Resolution Program), and each other distributor and exhibitor will give bona fide consideration to putting into place (and advertising internally), an Internal Dispute Resolution Program, and will make a copy of that Program available on a confidential basis to:

18.1.1  the Conciliator (who may supply a copy, on a confidential basis, to a distributor or exhibitor who is in dispute with that party); and

18.1.2  on request, a distributor or exhibitor who is in dispute with that party.


18.2 Each distributor and exhibitor will give bona fide consideration (having regard to its resources and other relevant matters) to putting into place in-house Code compliance arrangements intended to ensure that the exhibitor or distributor complies with this Code, and reflecting the principles in Australian Standard 3806-2006 (a Code Compliance Program).
