Editors' Code Committee opens annual PCC code review

The Editors’ Code Committee, the body which oversees the voluntary code of standards overseen by the Press Complaints Commission, has launched its annual review.

The committee is seeking suggestions from the public, civil institutions and figures from within the industry on how the code could be changed to improve self-regulation.

The launch of the review comes just days after the Code Committee changed the rules governing the publication of corrections.

From next year the prominence of corrections stemming from a complaint to the Press Complaints Commission, which oversees press self-regulation in the UK, will have to be agreed with the press watchdog prior to publication.

Suggestions for amendments to the code should be sent by 21 January to:

Ian Beales, Code Committee Secretary
PO Box 235, Stonehouse, Glos
GL10 3UF
Or by email to: ianbeales@mac.com
