European Commission releases a report on Self-Regulation in the EU Advertising sector

On 12 July, DG SANCO released the report of the Round Table on Advertising.

Chaired by the Director General of DG SANCO, Robert Madelin, the Round Table was set up in October 2005 in response to a request by advertisers for guidance and support at the current stage of their endeavours.

Over a series of three round table meetings (October 2005, January 2006 and May 2006), representatives of the Commission, some interested NGOs and representatives of the European Advertising Standards Alliance (EASA) discussed the effectiveness and potential of advertising self-regulation and how law and self-regulation can interact in modern Europe.

This report reflects the debate and contributions from the different participants.
