Second Public Consultation on Interactive Marketing Communication & Social Media Guidelines

The Advertising Standards Authority of Singapore (ASAS), an advisory council to the Consumers Association of Singapore, is now seeking public inputs for the amended Interactive Marketing Communication and Social Media Guidelines. The period of consultation is from 18 May 2016 to 17 June 2016.

Background

All advertisements that appear in Singapore are required to comply with the Singapore Code of Advertising Practice (SCAP), regardless of the media that they appear in. To address new issues in advertising that are not covered by the Code, ASAS drew up draft Digital and Social Media Advertising Guidelines. Comments were sought via a public consultation exercise that was held from 7 December 2015 to 8 January 2016.

Based on the comments that were received, ASAS has made amendments to the guidelines. They have also been renamed Interactive Marketing Communication and Social Media Guidelines to better reflect the scope. Please click on the following links to view the appended documents.
