The IAB SA decided at its AGM on 26th of October 2016 to apply for core membership of the Advertising Standards Authority of South Africa (ASA).
The ASA is itself in the process of applying for accreditation by the National Consumer Commission as an industry ombud in terms of the Consumer Protection Act. This will give it stronger and more expansive legal jurisdiction to deal with complaints and more effective enforcement powers.
EASA members met in Lisbon at the end of October for the second biannual meetings of 2016. The three-day event, hosted by the Portuguese SRO, ICAP, included meetings of all EASA’s Committees and – most importantly – saw the launch of a new International Council on Ad Self-Regulation.
ICAP celebrated its 25th anniversary on 26th of October 2016 and unveiled on this occasion a new logo and a new name: Auto-Regulação Publicitária.
The new identity comes from the need to communicate more clearly the scope and activity of the Institute, with the logo visually encompassing all the players that are part of the advertising ecosystem.
