Independent Press Standards Organisation – Editors’ Code of Practice

We have seen a number of occurrences of factually inaccurate reporting by UK newspapers recently, particularly regarding Shotgun Certificates being issued to young people.

Editors are supposed to comply with a ‘Code of Practice’ which should be enforced by the Independent Press Standards Organisation.

We encourage everyone to lodge complaints with the IPSO whenever a newspaper publishes shooting related articles that are inaccurate, misleading or biased.

Complaints can be entered online at
