Welcome to the CAA

The Cinema Advertising Association (CAA) is the Trade Association of cinema advertising contractors operating in the UK. One of the functions of the CAA is to monitor and maintain standards of advertising exhibition in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
The CAA recognise the guidelines for commercial content as outlined in the UK Code of Non-broadcast Advertising, Sales Promotion and Direct Marketing (the CAP Code) which is policed by the Advertising Standards Authority, and the Code of Standards for Advertising, Promotional and Direct Marketing in Ireland (the ASAI code).

Clearance is changing

From 1st April the CAA is the sole clearance body for commercial advertising in cinemas.
There will be a charge of £100 + vat per item for this service.

The CAA maintains a Copy Panel to ensure that all cinema commercials are suitable within the appropriate guidelines.
