The Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (English name: Association of Broadcasters of the Philippines, abbreviated KBP) is a broadcast media organization in the Philippines which provides its members broadcasting standards. The KBP was organized on April 27, 1973 in order to promote professional and ethical standards in Philippine broadcasting both in radio and television (TV). The KBP provides broadcast media regulations and guidelines for news, public affairs and commentaries, political broadcasts, childrens shows, religious programming, and including advertising to its members. The members of the KBP are composed of the owners and operators of radio and television stations including the radio and television stations themselves.

The broadcast code of the Philippines is a set of standards for performance and ethics which are followed by radio and television stations who are members of the KBP. The code is composed of 3 parts, part 1 includes the 33 articles of which the standards for programming are illustrated. Part 2 pertains to the implementing rules and regulations of the KBP while part 3 illustrates the penalties if a violation has been committed.

Hi there! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does building a well-established website like yours require a
massive amount work? I am brand new to blogging however I do write in my
journal daily. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
