7 December 2020

Consumer Healthcare Products (CHP) Australia is pleased to announce it will be expanding its expert advertising advisory service – AdCheck – to include TVC classifications.

Beginning in January 2021, therapeutic goods advertisements that AdCheck has assessed to be compliant with the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code (TGAC) will be able to access our TVC classification service at no extra charge.

AdCheck’s expansion into TVC classification follows requests and feedback from advertisers, retailers and broadcasters looking to confidently manage their classifications and compliance obligations.

CHP Australia Chief Executive Officer, Dr Deon Schoombie explains,

“Our new TVC classifications service will streamline post-production processes for advertisers and broadcasters wanting to effectively minimise their risk of noncompliance.”
