PRP Board’s decision report confirms IMPRESS still meets the Royal Charter standards

On 26 March 2019, the Board of the Press Recognition Panel (PRP) confirmed that IMPRESS continues to meet each of the 29 standards set out in the Royal Charter.  This means that, amongst other things, IMPRESS is independent of the print and online publishers it regulates, is appropriately funded, and has systems in place to protect the public.

The announcement followed the first ‘cyclical review’ of IMPRESS by the PRP since the regulator was recognised in October 2016.

The Board’s decision report has been published, along with the documentation considered by the Board when making its independent decision.
