SCYJ has made a submission to the press regulator Impress who are carrying out a consultation on the editor’s standards code.
The IMPRESS Standards Code is currently in draft form. It sets out the standards expected of IMPRESS publishers to follow in newsgathering and publishing information.
SCYJ are keen to ensure that children’s rights, in particular with regard to privacy, are given due consideration in the consultation.
