Disability Discrimination Act 1992

The Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards 2010 under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 provides protection for everyone in Australian against discrimination based on disability.  A key requirement under these standards is that a hearing augmentation system be provided in buildings where people assemble for:

  • civic, theatrical, social, political or religious purposes; or
  • educational purposes in a school, early childhood centre, preschool, etc; or
  • entertainment, recreational or sporting purposes; or
  • transit purposes.

  

Hearing Augmentation / Induction Loop / Phonak Dynamic SoundField / FM or Infrared Systems

Loop systems take an audio signal and convert it back to high quality audio for hearing aids to receive.

There are many different types of hearing augmentation systems available.  The most common type of hearing augmentation system is an audio-frequency induction loop, often simply referred to as an induction loop. 

Selection of the appropriate system takes into account:

  • the size of the venue
  • the building structure
  • magnetic noise in the surrounding environment
  • the audio input (either your existing or the planned audio system for the room)
  • existing hearing loops / augmentation systems in the vicinity of the venue.

To ensure that a loop system provides genuine benefit to the hard of hearing, it must comply with the requirements of the international standard for loop systems (IEC60118-4).
