The BBC Trust is inviting people and organisations to submit views on the BBC's reporting guidelines for the Scottish independence referendum.

It is part of a 12-week public consultation, launched on Monday, on additional guidelines that have been proposed by the BBC Executive to supplement the BBC's editorial guidelines.

The extra guidelines cover all reporting during the formal referendum period, which runs from 30 May 2014 to polling day on 18 September next year.

People who wish to take part in the consultation are asked to submit views on whether the proposed guidelines are relevant and appropriate, and if there are any omissions.

The final guidelines, along with consultation responses, will be published in March 2014.

Earlier this year, the BBC announced that it was investing an extra £5 million for coverage of the referendum.

More details on the consultation can be found on the BBC Trust website.
