Social Media Influencer Reporting

If you wish to anonymously inform us of social media influencers who you feel are not complying with enhanced guidance on influencer advertising and marketing that was introduced on 27 October 2023, please submit details here.

The notification of potential non-compliance with the guidance will assist us in our reach out to influencers and brands. Our approach currently is to ensure awareness of, and compliance with, the new guidance. We fully expect that once we have reached out, there will be compliance.
