What Can Be Advertised in the Recorder?
While the Recorders assumes no responsibility for the claims or promises made in any advertisement, the Editorial Board still believes we have an obligation to do what we can to assure that products or services advertised represent the highest business standards and are not in conflict with the teachings or policies of the Seventh-day Adventist church.2.

The editorial staff is less than two people, and is therefore unable to read and evaluate all the material offered in books, videos and websites, or to test the claims of health products. And the Recorder staff does not have the time or authority to assure that presentations made at future events will represent the church.
For that reason, the Recorder relies on other church organizations to evaluate products and services. We assume that books and health products sold in Adventist Book Centers have passed an evaluation process both at the publishing house and at the ABC, and we assume that printed materials, websites and events that are sponsored by an organization of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are also subject to ongoing evaluation.
The Recorder reserves the right to refuse any advertising or to discontinue any advertising without explanation at any time it feels necessary.
Before an individual Seventh-day Adventist can place an advertisement in the Recorder, they must provide a letter of reference from their church pastor and from the communication director of their conference. People who are not members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church may obtain an endorsement from the pastor of their own church, the pastor of a local Seventh-day Adventist church, or the local conference communication director.3. Ads from non-Adventists
Advertising from individuals who are not members of a Seventh-day Adventist Church are accepted on an individual basis if the editor believes the represent a service to Seventh-day Adventists. References are requires as stated above.4.
