The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) welcomes the publication in full of Dame Janet Paraskeva’s independent audit of our performance against our Commitment to Good Regulation.

The ASA is committed to delivering high standards in its work, to continuous improvement in its approach to regulation, to listening to others and to challenging itself to evolve so it retains the confidence of those we regulate. That’s why we commissioned this independent audit.

Dame Janet spent almost six months thoroughly investigating the ASA’s performance against five of the key areas set out in our Commitment to Good Regulation. Her audit has involved a detailed review of how we are delivering against it, looking at our processes, policies, ways of working and talking to people at all levels in the organisation. Dame Janet also met a wide range of industry stakeholders and listened to their views.
