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.
