The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) is not recognised by the Press Recognition Panel (PRP) but the majority of mainstream media industry in the UK agree to be regulated by IPSO. It was established on 8 September 2014 after the windup of the Press Complaints Commission (PCC), which had been the main industry regulator of the press in the United Kingdom since 1990.
IPSO exists to promote and uphold the highest professional standards of journalism, and to support members of the public in seeking redress where they believe that the Editors' Code of Practice has been breached. However, IPSO's effectiveness is questioned by some critics, including Hacked Off, and it has been called a "pointless so-called regulator" by the National Union of Journalists (NUJ).
