Webinar: Advertising Compliance Part 1: Print, Radio & TV
Wednesday, April 15, 2020, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Advertising brings in the bacon – but beware of potential UDAAP violations! Learn about the exceptions and flexibility in print, radio, and TV mediums and how to develop consistent, compliant campaigns.


  • Understand the regulatory requirements for print, radio, and TV ads
  • Use the flexibility offered for streamlined disclosures for certain ads
  • Develop compliant and consistent advertising campaigns
  • Implement best practices for review and approval of print, radio, and TV ads
  • Manage risks related to unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices


As your marketing campaigns evolve and expand, the regulatory requirements for print, radio, and TV advertisements remain the same. While this provides challenges, it also provides opportunity to reach consumers in innovative and compliant ways. This training session will explain the regulatory requirements in plain English to assist you in developing compliant traditional media advertising campaigns.

Specific attention will be paid to the exceptions and flexibility offered by print, radio, and TV advertisements. Whether such exceptions extend to billboards, internet radio (e.g., Pandora), and electronic video (e.g., YouTube) will also be explored. Examples of trigger terms and required additional disclosures will be used to explain and explore regulatory requirements and best practices.


This informative session is designed for marketing staff, compliance officers, risk managers, internal auditors, operations personnel, and management staff. Ideally, the marketing and compliance/audit teams should view the session together to ensure everyone is on the same page.
