The Australian Government Guidelines on Information and Advertising Campaigns (Guidelines) outline the requirements for review and certification of campaigns.
For advertising campaigns of $250,000 or more, the Accountable Authority will certify that the campaign complies with the Guidelines and relevant Government policies.
For advertising campaigns of $250,000 or more, the Independent Communications Committee (ICC) considers a proposed campaign and provides advice to the Chief Executive on compliance with Principles 1-4 of the Australian Government Guidelines on Information and Advertising Campaigns by non-corporate Commonwealth entities.
The ICC consists of a Chair and two Members, appointed from July 2023 by the Australian Government:
Ms Meredith Fairweather (Chair), Mr Adam Davey and Ms Allyson Warrington.
