Revisions / Re-approvals / Cutdowns

  • MINOR amendments to an advertisement previously approved require re-approval of the revised advertisement. Minor amendments to a script within THREE MONTHS after the date of approval will not attract any fees. Changes of retailer/outlet tags on a previously approved advertisement do not require re-approval (providing the approval is still current).

  • Approvals normally have a 2-year life span (there are exceptions). When approval expires a re-approval must be sought.

  • Any cut down of a previously approved advertisement. This includes items such as 5 & 10 second television billboards based on an existing approved television advertising campaign.

Print advertisements: $80

All other advertisements: 50% of scheduled fee

* NOTE The above fees schedule will account for the first hour of approval time allocated per script. In the vast majority of cases this allocation should result in a script ready for approval. The process includes invoicing and receipting, initial screening of scripts, requesting and assessing substantiating data and supporting information, meetings with advertisers, advice at concept stage, recommendations for amendments, feedback via fax or phone and final approval. Any extra time will attract an additional consultation fee levied at $130 per hour or any part thereof.

Fees are exempt from GST unless otherwise specified.
