The Editors’ Code of Practice Committee is reviewing the Editors' Code of Practice. The Code is written, reviewed and revised by the Editors' Code of Practice Committee with input from IPSO. This is a public consultation and the opportunity for interested parties to make submissions on updates and revisions to the Code.
The Committee invites suggestions from the public, editors, journalists, others working in the media, and anyone else with an interest in journalistic standards, on how the Code might be revised to improve the system of self-regulation of the press.
The consultation closes on Friday, 27 March 2020. Submissions should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

IPSO launched a consultation on the use of a press arbitration scheme on 15 June 2015.
The consultation invited suggestions on the structure, usefulness and design of an arbitration scheme to deal with legal complaints pursued against the press.
The consultation closed on 7 September 2015.
IPSO received 21 responses and has subsequently developed an arbitration scheme.
This consultation is part of IPSO’s Digital Review. It invites submissions on a proposed amendment to IPSO’s regulations concerning its jurisdiction over content published online by global digital publishers. The proposal would exclude some content published by global digital publishers from IPSO regulation but put in place safeguards to protect UK citizens and ensure that the standards of UK journalism can be upheld on online platforms showcasing globally produced content.
Submissions should be sent to email@example.com
Deadline: 2 October 2017
We are currently considering the submissions we received.
The Editors’ Code Committee (which oversees the Editors’ Code of Practice) launched this consultation in early 2017. This was not an IPSO consultation, but was relevant to IPSO and its stakeholders. The IPSO Chairman and Chief Executive sit on the Committee, which works with IPSO to maintain and develop the Code.
The Committee invited suggestions from the public, editors, journalists and others working in the media, and anyone else with an interest in journalistic standards, on how the Code might be revised to improve the system of self-regulation of the press.
The consultation closed on 3 March 2017.
The Committee is currently considering the feedback it received.
IPSO launched a review of the way its regulations should apply to global digital publishers on 18 July 2016.
The review was triggered by concerns that IPSO’s original regulations may no longer be adequate to deal with some of the issues thrown up by new models of global publishing.
The call for information closed on 19 August 2016.
IPSO received 9 responses and considered those submissions in detail before producing a proposal document which was published for a second round of consultation, launched on 24 July 2017.
IPSO often responds to consultations concerning press regulation and other similar matters, providing evidence from our unique insight as the independent regulator of 95% of printed and online publications in the UK.
