PRP call for information about the recognition system – CLOSED

The Press Recognition Panel (PRP) was created as part of a new system of regulatory oversight with the aim of ensuring the freedom of the press whilst also protecting the interests of the public. The PRP is gathering information in order to report on the extent to which the new system has succeeded in its aims, ahead of publishing a report later in the year.

We held a call for information from 18 April 2016 and it closed on 12 June 2016. However, we understand that people may still wish to share information, views and opinions with us. We welcome submissions from anyone with an interest in UK press regulation, including members of the public, journalists, academics, and campaigners. We have briefly outlined the history of the system, and posed some questions for you to consider to help inform our report, in our call for information document.

Submitting information

There are a number of ways to submit information to the PRP. Please include your name and contact details with your submission. The call for information document includes a form that you can either print and complete by hand, or which you can type onto.
