College publication advertising policy

The College will not permit at any time the placement of any advertising for illegal, defamatory or objectionable products.

Advertising must not contain fraudulent, misleading, deceptive, or offensive material, including material that misrepresents, ridicules, or attacks an individual or group on the basis of age, colour, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or disability status.

Advertising must not be related to any of the following: pharmaceuticals, alcohol, firearms/ammunition, fireworks, gambling, pornography, private health insurers, tobacco or any other product, service, person or entity that the College considers to be inconsistent with the principles and values of the College. In addition, the College will not accept recruitment or advertisements for general practice vacancies outside of New Zealand’s general practice workforce.

No advertising shall be permitted which may injure the good name or reputation of the College.

Under no circumstance will our acceptance of an advertisement be considered an endorsement of the product(s) and/or service(s) advertised or the company that manufacturers, distributed, or promotes such product(s) and/or service(s).
