Description

This paper contributes to the integration objectives among APEC member economies by providing a stocktake of advertising regulations and standards within APEC economies and comparing them with what is considered ‘international best practice’. In addition, since in several economies, advertising regulations are largely carried out by the industry itself through self-regulatory organizations (SROs), the paper also assesses the capabilities of many of these organizations within the region.
