IPSO is running an arbitration scheme which helps you make legal claims against the press without going to court.
A claim can be brought by an individual or organisation against the publisher of a participating newspaper or magazine.
The scheme is managed for IPSO by CEDR (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution), Europe’s largest independent Alternative Dispute Resolution service for both commercial and consumer disputes, with an independent specialist barrister acting as arbitrator.
Arbitration is a separate process from our complaints service. It deals specifically with legal issues, requires a fee, and provides different remedies.
This scheme is a pilot. This means it will run for 12 months, after which time we will assess the scheme to develop it further. This does not affect how claims will be dealt with.
