The ASA Council operates independently of the Government and the advertising industry, it consists of 15 members appointed by an independent Chairman, currently the right hon. Lord Smith of Finsbury, and criteria for appointment are therefore primarily a matter for the ASA. Council members are chosen for their breadth of experience and do not represent any sector or business. The membership covers both the non-broadcast and the broadcast remit.
