Fact-checkers around the world agree to shared policy

Among the key elements of the code are a commitment to fairness and non-partisanship, and that the same process is followed for every fact check. Moreover, the signed organisations commit to transparency in publishing sources and the used methodology, as well as providing information on funding and organisation.

The efforts to develop a shared policy for diligent fact-checking among fact-checkers were lead by Poynter. The full code and the signatories can be found here.
