9. Objection to a chairman’s decision
Should the chairman of the Advertising Code Committee dismiss the complaint and should the complainant disagree with this rejection, he can lodge an objection, giving reasons, within 14 days with the entire Committee. This means that the notice of objection must be in the possession of the Committee within 14 days after the date the complaint was dismissed.
There is a charge for handling an objection to the dismissal of a complaint (see chapter 6 for the amount). This fee must likewise be in the possession of the ACA within 14 days.
If the Chairman of the Advertising Code Committee has upheld the complaint and recommended the advertiser to discontinue the distribution of the advertisement concerned and should the advertiser disagree with this decision, the advertiser can lodge an objection, giving reasons, within 14 days with the entire Committee. No fee is charged for handling an objection to a chairman’s allowance.
