Spain: Codes


Although Spain has a number of internal codes and guidelines for news organisations, they don’t have a national press code. However there are regional ones available:

Federation of the Spanish Press Code of Ethics for the Journalistic Profession
Adopted by Federation of the Spanish Press in Seville on 28 November 1993.

Association of Catalan Journalists 
The final text of the Deontological Code presented at the Second Congress of Catalan Journalists was finally approved by the Governing Board of the “Col.legi de Periodistes de Catalunya ” (Association of Catalan Journalists) at its plenary meeting held on the 22nd October 1992.
