  • What is in the Codebook?

    The Broadcasting Standards in New Zealand Codebook contains standards and guidelines which outline what is required of broadcasters when they broadcast programmes in New Zealand. The Codebook also contains an introductory section, commentary on the standards, definitions of frequently used words and phrases and updated guidance on the complaints process and other useful material.

    There are four Codes and they cover free-to-air television, pay television, radio and election programmes.
