We promote high professional and ethical standards among our members in news, programming, and business practices.
The KBP Broadcast Code provides Filipino broadcasters with practical guidelines for professional and ethical broadcasting. The guidelines have been hammered out by owners, managers, producers, journalists, and other broadcast practitioners and are therefore adapted to realities in Philippine broadcasting. Read or download the Broadcast Code. If you’ve noticed a lapse in the observance of the Broadcast Code by a KBP member station, you may report it to the KBP Standards Authority, which is responsible for enforcing the Code among members.
KBP accredits announcers and other regular on-air personnel of member stations to ensure that they possess sufficient knowledge of professional and ethical broadcast standards.
Broadcasters’ Continuing Education
Starting 2016, the KBP is implementing a continuing education program for broadcasters featuring courses on news reporting, broadcasting and the law, and ethical broadcasting.
