How Decisions are Published

All decisions of the Press Ombudsman upholding a complaint and, on appeal, the Press Council, must be published in accordance with the provisions of the  Publication Guidelines of the Press Ombudsman and Press Council.

All decisions of the Press Ombudsman and, on appeal, of the Press Council, will be published on the website of the Press Ombudsman and Press Council and will be circulated to the media generally.  Publication of such decisions as news items is at the discretion of the editors of any publication not involved in the complaint, subject to the general requirement that any such articles should be written and presented with fairness to all concerned in the spirit of the Code of Practice.
