The primary role of MCMC is to implement and promote the Government's national policy objectives for the communications and multimedia sector. MCMC is also charged with overseeing the new regulatory framework for the converging industries of telecommunications, broadcasting and on-line activities, in accordance with the national policy objectives set out in the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 (CMA).

The CMA provides that MCMC undertakes a policy implementation role, while policy decision-making is vested with the Minister, who may also give policy directions to the Commission.
