ITC Guidance Note for Licensees on Flashing Images and Regular Patterns in Television

First introduced by the ITC in 1994, the Guidance Note provides licensees with information to help them reduce the risk of television material causing seizures in viewers with photosensitive epilepsy, a condition affecting young people in particular.

The ITC held a detailed review of the Guidance Note during 2000, working closely with medical experts and representatives from licensees. The resulting revised Guidance Note was published in July 2001 after having been put out for consultation.

The Guidance Note is in PDF (Portable Document Format). To view PDF files you need Adobe Acrobat reader software which can be downloaded, free of charge, from the Adobe site.
