Code on the scheduling of television advertising

01 April 2016

This Code sets out the rules with which television broadcasters licensed by Ofcom must comply when carrying advertising. 

These rules give effect to relevant provisions of the Communications Act, the Audiovisual Media Services (AVMS) Directive and those policies determined by Ofcom following consultation. 

Broadcasters must also comply with the UK Code of Broadcast Advertising (the BCAP Code) issued by the Broadcast Committee of Advertising Practice.
