We provide circulation data to the Advertising & Marketing industries

The ABC is a non-profit organisation registered in terms of Section 21 of the Companies' Act, based on a bi-partite agreement between advertisers, advertising agencies and media owners.

Our primary function is the certification and provision of accurate and comparable circulation figures, to assist the bi-partite groupings (advertisers/marketers and publishers) in the buying and selling of advertising and promotional material. This is achieved through agreement or auditing standards, on the certificates and on the reports submitted.
