Polish Brewers - "Own-initiative compliance monitoring" - 7 Operational Standards

The Code of Commercial Communications of the Polish Brewers was upgraded in 2008 and
introduced into the Advertising Ethics Code of the Advertising Council (Rada Reklamy) in Poland
as a special chapter covering beer commercial communications. The Advertising
Ethics Code serves various industries and is the only cross-industry self regulation system in
Poland.
At the moment, the Polish Brewers' self-regulation system meets The Brewers of Europe's 7 operational standards for beer commercial communications: full code coverage; increased code compliance; impartial
judgement; fast complaints procedure; effective sanctions in place; increased consumer
awareness and self-monitoring.
The 7th standard (putting in place a systematic monitoring and reviewing of the code's functioning) was implemented and confirmed through Forum commitment no. 1416 and reported upon in May 2013.
This commitment is to fulfil this Standard through continued monitoring of code compliance. In addition, it is a step towards the ongoing implementation of The Brewers of Europe's European commitment entitled "Commercial communications for beer: The Brewers of Europe's 7 operational standards". Furthermore, in order to enhance the procedure with input and endorsement by an independent party, the existing Ethics Code (chapter concerning the brewing sector) will be reviewed and updated based on input from the Advertising Council.
