RULE 1: PBS Review

Prior PBS clearance is required for all offers on PBS programs. Producers desiring to include an offer on a PBS program must consult with PBS a minimum of two months in advance of the program delivery date for a determination as to its permissibility. In the absence of sufficient notice and if a timely resolution is not mutually agreed upon, PBS reserves the right to delete announcements at the producer's expense.

[The On-Air Offer Clearance Form may be found in the Red Book Guidelines (Forms & Instructions Section) and submitted to Program Underwriting Policy (PUP) at: or fax #: 703-739-5295.]
