Advertising Standards Authority
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) is the self-regulatory organisation of the advertising industry in the United Kingdom. The ASA is a non-statutory organisation and so cannot interpret or enforce legislation. However, its code of advertising practice broadly reflects legislation in many instances. The ASA is not funded by the govt, but by a levy on the advertising industry.
- Guy Parker has been chief executive of the ASA since June 2009; his salary for this role is £120,000
Committee of Advertising Practice
