Members of the BSA (ie, those who make up the board that decides complaints) are appointed by the Governor-General, on the recommendation of the Minister of Broadcasting. There are four members: a chairperson and three others. The chairperson is required to be a barrister or solicitor. One member is appointed after consultation with broadcasters, and another after consultation with public interest groups.
Members are responsible for the determination of complaints and for the governance of the BSA.
