Press standards

IPSO helps to uphold professional standards in journalism by:

  • providing guidance and training on areas relevant to the Editor’s Code
  • ensuring that publications comply with IPSO’s requirements in relation to handling complaints and providing annual statements
  • carrying out standards investigations where we believe there have been serious and systemic breaches of the Editors' Code.
