For Advertisers

The Alcohol Advertising Pre-vetting Service (AAPS) is available to all marketers of alcohol products and offers confidential user pays advice on whether an alcohol beverage marketing communication complies with ABAC standards.

All new AAPS applications must be completed via the following link: Online Pre-vetting Application Lodgement.  On completion of the online form you will be sent pre-vetter contact details via email and the material you wish to have pre-vetted must be emailed to that pre-vetter.  AAPS applications for an ongoing campaign should be directed by email to the pre-vetter handling that campaign and a new application should not be lodged online.  If you are new to the AAPS Service please also complete an AAPS registration form.
