Section 2: Using the Guidelines



The Editorial Guidelines are supplemented by further Guidance, written by Editorial Policy as required and published on the BBC Editorial Guidelines website.  The Guidance contains further explanation of the themes and policies in the Guidelines and offers practical advice both on their application and on a range of common issues. 

Where further Guidance was available at the time of the original publication of this edition of the Editorial Guidelines, it is referenced alongside the relevant Practices.  However, new Guidance is issued and updated as needs arise.  Editorial Policy's regular newsletter advises those involved in content production for the BBC when guidance has been issued or revised.  It can be subscribed to on the Editorial Guidelines website.
