The ABAC Management Committee has said it will soon be undertaking a review of the ABAC Responsible Alcohol Marketing Code standards and coverage, and is inviting submissions from all interested parties.

ABAC undertakes periodic reviews of the Code to ensure it continues to meet its objectives as the alcohol, media and advertising industries and community expectations evolve and to ensure its terms are simple, practical, and clear.

Consultation will be undertaken to assist the ABAC Management Committee to review the Code, and where necessary make changes.  This Review will be confined to the Code standards and coverage.

ABAC said: “Submissions are invited to inform the review by the ABAC Management Committee and to ensure that a range of views representative of key stakeholders can be considered in a revision of the Code.

“This consultation paper includes the existing Code provisions together with discussion questions relevant to specific parts of the Code and concludes with a general discussion question.”

All submissions must include:

  • the organisation or interest group represented by the submission;
  • the name of the person making the submission; and
