Each publisher must submit a yearly statement reporting on their compliance processes and approach to ensuring editorial standards.
The statement must cover a publisher’s approach to editorial standards; complaints-handling processes; training processes and record on compliance, including details of any complaints that have been upheld by IPSO’s Complaints Committee within the relevant period.
The statements are one way in which publishers show that they take the Editors’ Code of Practice seriously and acknowledge the authority of IPSO to scrutinise and monitor their compliance with standards.
The detailed requirements are set out in Annex A of IPSO’s Regulations
