The Press Council has noted that subscriber members have different practices with respect to the publication of apologies and corrections that have not been ordered by the Press Ombudsman.
These guidelines are issued by the Press Council to assist members with deciding on the placement, prominence and content of apologies that they decide to publish after it has been brought to their attention by members of the public that incorrect information has been published or that an aspect of the Press Code has been breached.
The Press Council’s Public Advocate will also rely on these guidelines in interactions with publications to resolve and settle complaints on behalf of the public.
