RULE 2: Advance Information

PBS will provide advance information to all stations regarding such offers. In addition to obtaining advance PBS clearance, producers must supply PBS with the text and description of all announcements, a sample of the product or other materials to be offered (where it is not yet available, a detailed description should be provided) and other relevant materials or information which PBS may request at the time the offer is submitted for clearance. Offerors must agree to make samples of products and other materials available to stations upon request at no charge.
