Press standards

IPSO helps to uphold professional standards in journalism by:

  • providing guidance and training

  • monitoring compliance with IPSO’s requirements on complaints handling through annual statements

  • carrying out standards investigations where there have been serious and systemic breaches of the Editors' Code.
