IPSO has announced two new members, The Southwark News and Rochdale Online. They join over 1500 print and 1100 online titles already regulated by IPSO.
IPSO has launched a panel to offer journalists’ perspectives on IPSO’s work and wider industry issues.
The event gives the public the opportunity to question an expert media panel will be held in partnership with the Manchester Evening News, and chaired by BBC Radio's Eamonn O’Neal, and will discuss press regulation in 2017.
IPSO has responded to Sir Joseph Pilling’s external review into its independence and effectiveness, agreeing with the majority of recommendations and setting out how it will address these where necessary.
A new guide to the Editors' Code of Practice has been published by the committee responsible for creating the Code. The handbook sets the Code in context and highlights best practice and key IPSO adjudications. It is intended to help members of the public considering making a complaint, and editors facing a difficult decision on a story which might give rise to a breach of the Code, by providing examples of how IPSO has approached similar cases in the past.
The Editors’ Code of Practice, under which the vast majority of Britain’s newspaper, magazine and news website journalists work, is to undertake a public consultation on how it can be further improved, it was announced today.
The Readers’ Advisory Panel will provide comment to IPSO on any issues on which it is consulting or developing guidance, including the regular review of the Editors’ Code of Practice; provide their view to any external review or audit of IPSO; and act as a focal point for the public or representative groups to feed back their experiences of IPSO.
Claire Singers, a public relations consultant, and Mike Soutar, a multi-award winning magazine professional, have been appointed to the IPSO Board.
