    • claiming compliance or equivalence with

     an appropriate ‘Red Book’ designated classification or

    • by reference to the ACR or it’s publication.

    However in doing so the ACR retains the right to withdraw it’s permission for such use from anyone it considers is :

    1. Applying a ‘Red Book’ classification incorrectly or;

    The ACR decision in all matters relating to the  correct interpretation/ application of the ‘Red Book’ is final and any use of the ‘Red Book’ to test/advertise products indicates acceptance of these restriction.
