When is advertising prohibited?
Government advertising is not permitted in the lead up to a NSW state election.
Before every election, the NSW Government Caretaker Conventions are issued and provide up to date protocol on communications and other matters.
The only exceptions are:
- advertising relating to public health and safety matters
- service announcements (eg change of operating hours)
- notices required by law
- job and tender advertisements
Some agencies and events are also exempt from this restriction.
