Who are the subjects authorized to carry out prize promotions?

Prize promotions (competition, free gift promotions, etc.) can be organised only by manufacturing companies and businesses supplying or distributing goods and services, which make the object of the promotion, with the aim of advertising the company and increasing sales of the goods and services offered, as well as the visibility of the brand. Promotions can also be launched by those organisations representing business associations between companies, such as consortiums and cooperatives.
