Consolidated ICC code

Article B12 – Media sponsorship

The content and scheduling of sponsored media properties should not be unduly influenced by the sponsor so as to compromise the responsibility, autonomy or editorial independence of the broadcaster, programme producer or media owner, except to the extent that the sponsor is permitted by relevant legislation to be the programme producer or co-producer, media owner or financier.

Sponsored media properties should be identified as such by presentation of the sponsor's name and/or logo at the beginning, during and/or at the end of the programme or publication content. This also applies to online material.

Particular care should be taken to ensure that there is no confusion between sponsorship of an event or activity and the media sponsorship of that event, especially where different sponsors are involved.
