The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), who has the responsibility for implementing the advertising and trading regulations at games time, has a small budget to provide advice and assistance to those affected by the regulations. The ODA has a statutory requirement to publish a detailed notice giving advice to those directly involved six months before the regulations come into effect. The notice is expected to be published in late 2011/early 2012.
