As described in a new Circular Letter (circular 634), FAMHP now accepts electronic submissions of advertising notifications and visum applications (for TV or radio spots) as well as information campaigns.
Although it is not a requirement, FAMHP strongly recommends to submit files for public advertisings via email to the new email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Three application forms are provided depending on the kind of publicity:
- Application form for prior approval or extension of approval for publicity on radio or television
- Application form for prior approval or extension of approval for information campaigns
- Application form to notify other types of publicity
As the Royal Decree of April 7th 1995 remains into force and specifies that applications have to be sent to FAMPH by registered mail, the completed and signed application forms must still be sent to FAMHP by registered mail. But as this can be done after approval has been obtained, this electronic submission will save time and is a through simplification!
