  Advertising Standards Authority - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1961, the Advertising Association established the Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) to draft a code of advertising for advertisers to adhere to.
Typically, advertisements that fall in 'paid-for' spaces in newspapers (both national and regional) and magazines that are published in the UK fall within the remit of the ASA.
The ASA can, in special circumstances, consider complaints about advertisements that appeared more than three months previously, namely if it could not have been possible for the complainant to know that the advertisement was misleading at the time (advertisements for long-term investments would be such an example).

 Advertising slogan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Advertising slogans are claimed to be, and often are proven to be, the most effective means of drawing attention to one or more aspects of a product or products.
At the start of World War I, when modern advertising was in its infancy, a famous poster called on young British men to heed the need expressed by one of Britain's foremost soldiers, Lord Kitchener, and volunteer to serve their country.
Advertising slogans are subject to ethical constraints and are often viewed with reservations, if not actual misgivings by official bodies, such as the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK, or the European Advertising Standards Alliance who claim to have a responsibility to the public good and whose decision making follows an Advertising Code.

 GCIS: Submission by the Advertising Standards Authority of South Africa
The aim is to ensure high standards in advertising and thus to maintain consumer trust and confidence, to the benefit of all concerned.

One of the ASA's principal concerns for the future remains the fact that for so long as it remains an entirely voluntary self-regulatory body its jurisdiction will be confined to those media owners and advertisers that submit to its jurisdiction, either through membership of the ASA or through membership of one of its constituent members.

 standards - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about standards
In the fast-moving area of computer technology, standards have sometimes developed haphazardly: market forces brought about de facto standards such as the MS-DOS operating system for PCs, or the 8.8 cm/3.5 in floppy disk.
If computers are to communicate over a network, however, standards must be coordinated: the World Wide Web, for example, works because everybody who uses it agrees to follow the same conventions, such as using HTML to build Web documents.
Other standards, like SMTP – the procedure for sending e-mail – exist to make cross-platform communication (for example between a Unix machine and a Macintosh) possible.

I fear that the ASA is being used as the unwitting tool of anti-car pressure groups, with a corrosive effect on an important section of British industry.
It was my mind that the ASA was put in place to ensure that advertisers were subject to a code of conduct and if they produced an advert which was offensive and upset many people they had the power to have it removed.
Can you assure me that the advertisers will be instructed to display retractions of equal size and prominence warning children that playing in the road kills, and that crossing the road within 120 feet of a car doing 40 mph will result in it hitting them.
