Press Complaints RSS

The Press Complaints Commission is an independent organisation set up in 1991 to ensure that British newspapers and magazines follow the letter and spirit of an ethical Code of Practice dealing with issues such as inaccuracy, privacy, misrepresentation and harassment. Most complaints are resolved directly by editors to the satisfaction of those complaining. The Commission adjudicates formally on the remainder, with all critical adjudications published in full by the publications involved. Here you will find some useful links along with all our stories about PCCc cases.
