Processing Times for Infomercials

You must allow at least 28 days for classification of infomercials, given their longer duration. Please consider the following when applying for classification of infomercials:

1. Ensure you incorporate enough time to modify your infomercial, if required.
2. You may also need to allow time for captioning.
3. Please ensure you allow enough time for your infomercial to be despatched prior to your on-air date.

The application asks you to state the classification required by date and on-air date. If these dates are brought forward, please advise CAD immediately to avoid missing your on-air commitments. Don’t forget to also advise us if your deadline is pushed back as this will assist CAD to prioritise applications.
