PRP Board’s decision report on recognising IMPRESS

On 25 October 2016, the Press Recognition Panel's (PRP) Board agreed to recognise IMPRESS as an approved press regulator. This followed a rigorous and robust assessment of IMPRESS’ application for recognition. IMPRESS meets all 29 criteria (numbered 1 to 23) in the Royal Charter, which means that, amongst other things, IMPRESS is independent of the print and online publishers it regulates, and is appropriately funded.

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