Central government guidelines for crisis and emergency communications to be reviewed
The Prime Minister's Office has set up a working group to examine the need to review the central government guidelines for crisis and emergency communications.
The working group is responsible for examining the extent to which the guidelines for communications in crisis situations and emergencies given in 2007 require reform. The group is also to put forward a proposal for updated guidelines. The new guidelines must take into account the Security Strategy for Society, the need for government level corporate communications, review of the Emergency Powers Act, and the effects of globalisation and the regional administration reform.
The working group began its work on 1 May 2012 and its mandate will run until the end of the year.
