The Ad Standards Community Panel is the centre piece of the advertising self-regulatory system.
The role of the Community Panel is to review and assess complaints from the community about ads. With a keen sense of current community standards, the Community Panel decide whether an ad is in breach of the advertising codes.
The Community Panel includes people from a broad range of age groups and backgrounds – representative of the diversity of Australian society. While they are active in their own communities, Community Panel members do not represent any particular interest group and are independent of the advertising industry.
Community Panel members are appointed through a rigorous open recruitment process. This happens semi-regularly to ensure it retains a mix of corporate knowledge while still representing the diverse Australian population.
