Make a complaint

You can make a complaint via this website by clicking here.

Before you do so, please read this information which explains which complaints IPSO can deal with. 


The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) is the independent regulator of the UK newspaper and magazine industry. As part of IPSO's role in raising editorial standards, it considers complaints that the Editors' Code of Practice has been breached. This service, like all IPSO's services, is free.

This section of our website explains what complaints we can deal with - and what we can't. It explains how our procedures work and sets out what you can expect from us. If you have any questions about how the complaints service works or how the Editors' Code may apply in your case, feel free to contact us on 0300 123 2220, or write to us at
