Last month, just ahead of the US administration change, marketers and advertisers from around the world gathered in Washington, D.C. to participate in a roundtable on the future of self-regulation, held by ICC.
Self-regulation, a system capable of addressing radical changes in the media world, is continually proving its importance in the global environment of the 21st century.

Highlighting this point, ICC Mexico, in coordination with the Mexican Council for Self-regulation and Advertising Ethics and the United States Council for International Business, organized a forum on self-regulation in advertising on 15 November 2007 in Mexico City.
