The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) is the advertising industry’s self regulating body in New Zealand. The ASA has many Codes that advertisers are expected to follow, with the most useful for healthcare issues being the Therapeutic Products, Therapeutic Services and Ethics Codes.
To make it easy to complain about a product that breach these Codes, the ASA has an online complaint form.
If you have seen a healthcare related advert that you think should be complained about, but you either aren’t comfortable making a complaint or aren’t sure if the advert breached the ASA’s codes, please contact us with details of the advert and we’ll let you know if we can assist you.
If you would like to make a complaint, but are having problems finding something health related to complain about, please try these google searches for inspiration (reload the page for more/different random suggestions):
