IBFAN Asia supported monitors in the 11 countries and coordinated with IBFAN-ICDC on a regional Code monitoring exercise, putting their skills to use. Coached by IBFAN Asia and IBFAN-ICDC, monitors embarked on a yearlong monitoring project since its conception in October 2017, with a focus on labelling and promotional activities on the online portals. IBFAN Asia and IBFAN-ICDC jointly compiled the country reports into a regional report[CC1], which highlights trends and themes companies are using to violate and circumvent the International Code.

Look What They’re Doing!

In addition to the Breaking the Rules, Stretching the Rules global monitoring report, ICDC also publishes monitoring reports according to themes and by country in co-operation with national groups. As IBFAN-ICDC hopes monitoring will eventually become a sustainable activity at country level, these reports can now be downloaded for free to enable national groups to use them as blue prints for their own reports if they so wish.

ICDC Focus


In addition to monitoring reports that are organised by country and according to themes, ICDCalso has a FOCUS series to highlight topical matters or to shame particular companies whose activities we find worrisome.
