Independent reviews

Read the findings and full reports of the two external, independent reviews into IPSO's operations

As part of our commitment to transparency, we have commissioned two independent and external reviews into our operations.

The most recent, conducted by former senior civil servant Sir Bill Jeffrey was published in 2023. It found that IPSO regulation has “influenced the industry for the better”.

The review, which also found IPSO was “well led and managed”, made a number of recommendations on how to improve public confidence. 

The review followed from the work of Sir Joseph Pilling, whose 2016 review contained 45 recommendations intended to “help a new regulator, which demonstrates early achievement, promise and commitment, to develop into a trusted, experienced regulator”.
