Most of the 400+ codes listed here were drafted and adopted by an individual outlet (e.g. a newspaper) or a sector of the media industry (e.g. broadcasting) or a union/ association of journalists or a press council or a press club. The exceptions consist of synthetic codes, codes imposed by a government or codes recommended by international bodies or militant citizens. Some codes are specialised. Most are general. They differ in length from half a page to over 50 pages - but you will notice that they rarely differ on basic principles. To search the codes, enter your search keyword in the box below.
