Operational Practices

Free TV Australia’s Operational Practices 24, 29 and 36 provide information on the basic requirements for the delivery of television commercials to Australian television broadcasters. Operational Practice 48 was developed to assist in addressing the issues surrounding the problem of advertisements sounding louder than adjacent programs.
