Industry Royal Charter submitted to Privy Council
The newspaper and magazine industry’s proposed Royal Charter for self regulation of the press has been formally submitted to the Privy Council Office.
The Charter submitted by the four newspaper and magazine trade associations - The Newspaper Society representing regional and local newspapers, Newspaper Publishers Association representing national newspapers, Professional Publishers Association representing magazines and the Scottish Newspaper Society - was published by the industry on April 25th.
Since then there has been one small amendment to include in the recognition criteria the provision by the new independent regulator of a whistle-blowers’ hotline.
It is understood that the next meeting of the Privy Council is due to take place on May 15th.
