The Gibraltar Regulatory Authority has developed an Audiovisual Commercial Communications Code (the "Code") in accordance with the Broadcasting Act 2012.
The main objectives of this Code are:
To ensure that the public can be confident that audiovisual commercial communications are legal, honest, truthful, decent and protect the interests of the audience.
To ensure that audiovisual commercial communications do not impinge on the editorial integrity of broadcasts.
To provide clear guidance to broadcasters as to the standards to which audiovisual commercial communications shall adhere.
To provide guidance to the general public on the standards they can expect from audiovisual commercial communications on broadcasting services.
To provide broadcasters with a simple, flexible and comprehensive code that does not impede in an unwarranted manner their right to communicate commercial messages.
