Ads can no longer be louder than the programs they interrupt

Published on Thursday, December 13, 2012

All is CALM.

Or that’s the way it’s supposed to be today with the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) law taking effect.

Ads can no longer be louder than the programs they interrupt, according to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules.

The legislative effort was begun more than four years ago and the rules were adopted in December 2011. TV networks, ad agencies and production companies received a year-long grace period to get their systems in compliance.

Got a complaint? Use this form on the FCC website or call 1-888-225-5322.
