Our Viewing Team
We have a team of compliance viewers who assess material for compliance with broadcast and TV-on demand (VOD) codes. The viewers rate the material for VOD labelling, recommend time codes for advertising breaks and provide content guidance for editorial teams.
For broadcast content, the team will advise on scheduling, edits where necessary for specific time slots and provide guidance on labelling and warnings. Much of this work is carried out remotely but on-site viewing can be provided.
