Decided by the Press Council on appeal

The Press Council considers appeals to substantive decisions of the Press Ombudsman, and to decisions of a sub-committee of the Press Council where the Press Ombudsman has exercised his power to refer a complaint to the Press Council. 

Appeals can be made on one or more of the following grounds: 

  • that there has been an error in procedure;
  • that significant new information is available that could not or was not made available before the decision was made;
  • that there has been an error in the application of the Code of Practice

Mere disagreement with the decision of the Press Ombudsman is not grounds for appeal.
