Depending on the form and shape of the OPNS, we may therefore seek to backstop or make statutory some of the obligations placed on the actors in the wider supply chain. For intermediaries, publishers and platforms, new requirements are likely to be introduced by the ASA as a result of the OPNS, though it is not currently known what shape these may take or what firms will be in scope. Early conversations have indicated the OPNS proposal is likely to consider larger publishers, platforms and large intermediary companies providing services to facilitate the matching of ads to online inventory. As such, it is difficult for the government to provide a cost analysis of the risks and benefits to business at this stage. However, no matter the approach that is followed, platforms will be subject to the standalone duty that the forthcoming Online Safety Bill will introduce to tackle fraudulent paid-for advertising. The Committee of Advertising Practice is the industry committee responsible for writing and maintaining the CAP Code.

In addition to the role of the ASA, there are a range of self-regulatory and wider industry initiatives which we would like to highlight as constructive means of addressing harms and drivers of harm in online advertising. In highlighting industry approaches we have focused on initiatives that bring industry together to address drivers of harm – rather than the steps taken by individual businesses. We recognise that not all players have equal capacity and resources to act and do not have the same market power, either socially or financially. The CDEI’s review into online targeting suggested that platforms be required to host publicly accessible archives for online “opportunity” advertising and adverts for age-restricted products, to enable greater scrutiny about how these adverts are targeted. They also recommended that the government consider how best to empower consumers and give them control over their data and how they are targeted.

The commercial web magazine, HotWired, sold the ad to AT&T for a price of $30,000 with a run time of three months. The ad produced click-through rates of 44% and to put that into perspective, the average click-through rate of a display ad in 2019 is 0.35%.It was around this time that the concept of online advertising really blew up for publishers who were looking for a way to keep their content free. Companies often pay search engines to have their market presence rank higher on search results, this is to increase visibility of their products and services.

The ASA has a number of specific and general rules in the CAP Code that seek directly or indirectly to mitigate the potential harms arising from negative body image. The ASA also maintains guidance that encapsulates the lessons from relevant ASA rulings related to body image concerns (e.g. an ad that suggests it is desirable to be unhealthily thin, or that boys and girls can get acceptance from looking a certain way). On the more harmful end of the spectrum, poor body image can lead to eating disorders and suicidal thoughts, with 13% of adults admitting to having experienced suicidal thoughts because of poor body image. Advertising faces criticism for perpetuating this issue, as members of the public are generally unable to connect with the images presented to them. A recent body image survey carried out by the Women and Equalities Committee found that 57% of adults reported ‘rarely’ or ‘never’ seeing themselves or people who look like them regularly reflected in images in media and advertising.

There were several driving factors behind this broken trust, including that of a regulatory framework which needs to be strengthened as well as a lack of accountability and transparency across the board. Due to the lack of transparency in the system, there were substantive evidence gaps and it was not straightforward to unpick the dynamics at play in this market. Options for purchasing advertising space range from use of the full programmatic supply chain through to direct contracts between advertisers and some publishers. Some publishers are also expanding their own capability to offer more tailored direct services to advertisers, including more advanced audience targeting. This may in turn be leading, in some cases, to increased use of direct contracts, which can bypass some of the open display supply chain. The CMA market study concluded that open display comprises around 32% of display expenditure online.

That said, there have been a number of peer-reviewed studies we have covered in recent years that suggest a link between excessive screen time and adverse health outcomes in children, including obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure. The results are also reliant on people accurately recalling the amount of time spent on each activity, and children may have been reluctant to divulge their true onscreen time or consumption of unhealthy foods.
