The Advertising Standards Bureau (ASB) is an Australian organisation that investigates breaches of advertising standards in the Australian media.[1] It also regulates and is able to get advertisers to remove offensive material.[2]

The management of the bureau, and evaluation of complaints is conducted by the Advertising Standards Board.[3]

The board required removal of televisions advertisements by advertisers for sexually explicit material in May 2009.[4] However other forms of material also generated significant numbers of complaints.[5]
