Article by

In the light of the ongoing impact of coronavirus, the Government has extended the deadline for submissions to the Call for Evidence from Monday 23 March to Monday 6 April to give stakeholders more time to adapt workloads and guarantee that the Government receives the best evidence.

The Government launched the call for evidence in January 2020. The aim of the Government’s consideration of how online advertising is regulated is to foster fair, accountable and ethical online advertising that works for citizens, businesses and society as a whole.

The call for evidence is focused on the first pillar of this work, ensuring standards about the placement and content of advertising can be effectively applied and enforced online so that consumers have limited exposure to harmful or misleading advertising.
