CAB is making a small change to the fees charged to approve and classify commercials for broadcast in New Zealand (click to see new pricing). The increase only applies to commercials less that five minutes in duration and there is no change to the fee for approving infomercials. Advice and concept/script pre-approval will continue to be provided free of charge.
We appreciate that price increases are never popular but note that this increase is our first adjustment since June 2016 and is well below the inflation rate over this 4 year period.
If this increase causes you any commercial difficulties (for example, you’re committed to a quotation using the old rates) please let us know before 1 February so that we can agree an alternative transition period.
