They exclude applicable taxes, actual out-of-pocket cost for recording media, their labelling and delivery charges, and any amount paid by the monitor to a commercial media monitor acting pursuant to a CBRA licence for any CBRA item.

(2) Subsections (3) to (7) apply in a year to a monitor that, no later than January 31 of that year, delivers to CBRA a statement certified as accurate and signed by a senior officer of the monitor that in the officer’s good faith view, the monitor’s total media monitoring costs for that year shall be less than $100,000 and that the monitor wishes to avail itself of section 27 of this tariff.

(3) A monitor that complied with subsection (2) shall provide the information set out in paragraph 17(1)(d) only if the monitor has that information.

(4) Paragraph 20(1)(c) does not apply to a monitor that has complied with subsection (2).

(5) As soon as its total media monitoring costs exceed $100,000 in the relevant year, a monitor that has complied with subsection (2) shall notify CBRA of this occurrence. That monitor shall not be entitled to avail itself of this section for the rest of the relevant year and shall instead comply with the other provisions of this tariff.

(6) A monitor that has complied with subsection (2) and that has not delivered a notice pursuant to subsection (5) shall deliver to CBRA, on or before January 31 of the next year, a statement certified as accurate and signed by a senior officer of the monitor setting out the monitor’s total media monitoring costs for the relevant year.

(7) A monitor that complied with subsection (2) and whose total media monitoring costs for the relevant year exceeded $100,000 may not avail itself again of subsection (2) without the written authorization of CBRA.

GENERAL

Indemnity

28.

(2) A monitor’s obligations pursuant to subsection (1) are not affected by the right of approval granted to CBRA pursuant to paragraph 8(2)(e).
