We must treat matters of politics and public policy with due accuracy and impartiality in news and other output.
We must not express an opinion on current affairs or matters of public policy other than broadcasting or the provision of online services.
We must not campaign, or allow ourselves to be used to campaign.
Opinion polls commissioned by the BBC or by those making content for the BBC, acting alone or jointly with other organisations, must not compromise due impartiality on the matters researched.
We must report opinion polls, surveys, votes and similar research with due accuracy, regardless of whether the research was carried out by the BBC or by others.
