The appointment of Dr Nicholls is the final regulatory approval required for the commencement of the Independent Telecommunications Adjudicator process. The ACCC recently approved the two key documents underpinning the process, the Office of the ITA Limited Constitution and Charter of Independence. These documents provide a framework to ensure that the Adjudicator will act independently.
