The alcohol industry has a dedicated code for the responsible marketing of alcohol. The ABAC  Scheme is a regulatory body for responsible alcohol marketing in Australia. It has the support of Australian Governments and the vast majority of the alcohol, media and advertising industries.  The Code spells out what you cannot say, show or infer in alcohol advertising or packaging and includes restrictions on where alcohol marketing can appear.  The ABAC Scheme also has a Pre-Vetting Service which provides confidential advice on whether proposed alcohol advertising or packaging is consistent with the Code.
