PREFACE The need for an alternative democratic system of self-regulation in the advertising industry became apparent in the early 1970s when the Marcos administration sought to impose controls on media use, including on advertising, through the Mass Media Council. Through the efforts of advertising industry leaders, the Mass Media Council eventually gave way to a Council of Advertising, Public Relations, Research and Sales Promotion chaired by respected advertising practitioner Francisco Floro. This Advertising Council, in turn, created a sub-committee composed of representatives from the Association of Philippine Advertising Agencies, the Cinema Advertising Association of the Philippines, Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster sa Pilipinas, Lapian ng mga Adbertaysing Praktisyoners na Pilipino sa Ikauunlad ng Sambayanan, the Outdoor Advertising Association of the Philippines, the Philippine Association of National Advertisers, the Print Media Organization, the Office of Civil Relations, Institute of Mass Communications, and the consumer sector. The sub-committee under the chairmanship of Lyle K. Little, undertook the drafting of a Code of Ethics for the advertising industry. After 15 months of preparation, the Code was signed and ratified in March of 1974 by all participating organizations represented in the sub-committee. Following its formation in May, 1974, the Philippine Board of Advertising (PBA), later renamed the Advertising Board of the Philippines (AdBoard), formally adopted the Code on April 15, 1975 and commenced its implementation. Since then, the Code has undergone a series of reviews and revisions to address developments in the industry. Updated revised editions of the Code were adopted in 1975, 1979, 1984, 1987 and 1990. In November 1994, the AdBoard Board of Directors decided to conduct another comprehensive review of the Code to make it more responsive and relevant to the industrys needs and current advertising practices. The Code of Ethics Review Committee was then formed in March 1995 with AdBoard Advertising Content Regulation Committee (ACRC) Regular member Antero B. Javier, Jr. as Chairman. The final draft of this edition of the Code was completed by the Review Committee on August 31, 1995 and ratified by the AdBoard Directors on January 23, 1996.
