|Abstract/Citation:||The law prohibits advertisements which display models (both male and female) which are underweight in accordance to measuring formulas prescribed in the law (i.e. body mass index). Models will be obliged to produce a doctor's certificate prior to taking part in the production of an advertisement.
Additionally, if an advertiser alters the appearance of the model by digital means, the advertisement must contain a notice which clarifies that the model's body features were graphically altered.
