ICAS, EASA and CONARED have issued a joint statement on the importance of responsible advertising and COVID-19.
Brussels, April 1, 2020 – This year we are facing an unprecedented international crisis due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Alongside the human tragedy, the global economy is severely impacted and consumers and businesses across many industries are suffering as a result of this latest outbreak.
On 10 March 2020, ICC Germany and ICC Switzerland presented the German version of the 10th revision of the ICC Marketing Code – the gold standard for ethical advertising aimed at securing trust between consumers and companies in the digital age. More information (in German) can be found on the website here.
Due to the corona virus outbreak and the measures put in place by the Belgian government, EASA has set up a remote working scheme to ensure the continuity of its operations and to protect its employees' health.
EASA's office will be closed to the public until 5 April 2020.
On February 17, Justina Raižytė, EASA's Head of Development and Policy, shared insights on influencer marketing at a public hearing on Digital Advertising and Consumer Information at the European Parliament.
Following the decision of the European Parliament to suspend all external events due to the Coronavirus outbreak until 30 March 2020, unfortunately we have to postpone EASA’s event on Responsible Advertising and Gender Portrayal to a later date.
