Advertising Code and guidance

I am an advertiser and I want to make sure my ad is compliant. I'd like more information on the Advertising Code, as well as guidance so I can do the right thing. I'd like to submit an application to use a restricted representation or apply for pre-approval advertise in specified media. I attended Advertising Code training and want to know the answers to questions being asked.
