2022 Strengthened Code of Practice on Disinformation

This strengthened Code of Practice on Disinformation empowers industry to adhere to self-regulatory standards to combat disinformation.

Fighting Disinformation: 2022 Strengthened Code of Practice

The 2022 Strengthened Code of Practice on Disinformation builds on the pioneering 2018 Code while setting more ambitious commitments and measures aimed at countering online disinformation.

The new Code brings together a more diverse range of stakeholders than ever, empowering them to contribute to wide-ranging improvements by signing up to precise commitments relevant to their field. Such commitments include demonetising the dissemination of disinformation; guaranteeing transparency of political advertising; enhancing cooperation with fact-checkers; and facilitating researchers access to data.

Supporting platforms and industry to meet their commitments under the Code of Practice on Disinformation feeds in to the European Commission’s commitment to a more transparent, safe and trustworthy online environment.
