A proposal for a new work item within the scope of an existing committee has been submitted to ISO. Standards Australia invites stakeholders to share their views on the proposal to help inform the Australian position (feedback is requested by 2 July 2021).
The proposed standard will provide principles and best practice guidelines for advertising and marketing to protect children at different ages and stages of development from harm and to promote their healthy physical and psychological growth.
