New codes of broadcasting standards

The new codebook was produced by the BSA in close consultation with a working group of broadcaster representatives. It also reflects submissions received from members of the public. In developing the codebook, the objective was to ensure a modern, principles-based and consistent set of codes that are user-friendly and informative. The three separate codes have been collated into one codebook.

The new codebook will apply to all programmes broadcast on or after 1 April 2016. The old codes apply to any programmes broadcast before 1 April 2016. This means if you would like to make a complaint about a programme broadcast before 1 April, you should complain under the old codes, which can be viewed or downloaded here.
