The Code sets out the parameters of businss conduct by its signatories.  It provides a framework which recognises the unique aspects and challenges in the marketing and exhibiting of films.  It also provides procedures to resolve disputes which arise among Code signatories under the supervision of a Code Conciliator.

The website sets out the provisions of the Code, information about the make up of the Committee which administers it and how to use the Code to help resolve disputes.

It is a voluntary arrangement, self-supporting and independent of Government.
