Right of Reply

Editorial Guidelines Just a reminder that we have an obligation under Section 7 of the Ofcom Code and Section six of our Editorial Guidelines to seek a response from individuals or organisations who are the subject of significant criticism or allegations of wrongdoing or incompetence. In very rare circumstances where we propose to broadcast a serious allegation without giving those concerned an opportunity to reply, the proposal must be referred to the Director, Editorial Policy and Standards.
