Children's Advertising Clearance Committee

Ad Standards' Children's Clearance Committee has the important responsibility of reviewing and approving children's broadcast advertising messages to ensure compliance with the provisions of The Broadcast Code for Advertising to Children (Children's Code). All children's commercials must be approved by the Children's Committee and carry a valid Ad Standards approval number prior to broadcast on Canadian television.

The committee, which includes industry and public representatives, meets every other week to review and approve finished commercials.
