Code Review: Call for evidence

From 2020-2022 Impress undertook a comprehensive review of its Standards Code and Guidance, led by its Code Committee.

The first stage of the Code review involved a call for evidence, open between 23 November 2020 and 26 February 2021. Through this process we invited submissions and evidence on a specific range of issues to help us draft a revised Impress Standards Code that continues to be relevant and fit for purpose in the changing world we live in.
