All the forms you need to submit ads and scripts for clearance
When you submit an ad or script to us for clearance, it’s important you include all the details we need to process the clearance efficiently.
To help you do this, we have a number of standard forms that you should fill in and include as part of your submission.
The exact forms required for any given ad will depend on the nature of that ad. Please speak to your Clearcast contact if you’re not sure what you need to send us.
