NEW THERAPEUTIC ADVERTISING STANDARDS AUTHORITY CODE
The ASA has been working on combining the therapeutic codes as part of their project to reduce the overall number of codes.
The Therapeutic Products Advertising Code, the Therapeutic Services Advertising Code and the Code for Advertising Weight Management Products and Services have all been streamlined and consolidated into one code with accompanying guidance notes to help with interpretation.

ASA will make any necessary amendments to the code wording once the Natural Health Products Bill becomes law.
