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 (January 2010 edition). 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.
It incorporates recent changes to the Code of Practice and the ACMA's Children's Television Standards.
