CAD provides classification and information services to advertisers,
agencies and production houses in relation to television commercials and infomercials.
All television commercials and infomercials must be classified before they can be
broadcast. It is important to note that CAD does not provide legal advice. It is
the responsibility of each advertiser and or its advertising agency to ensure that
their commercial/s comply with all relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
For more information
about CAD's services, classification procedures and television production
guidelines please download a copy of the latest Classification Handbook.
Note: The Classification Handbook may be amended from time
to time. As changes are made to the Classification Handbook, these changes will
be made to the version on this website.
