The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) prepares and revises the Broadcasting Codes. These codes govern the standards and practices to be followed by broadcasters.

When the BAI is developing a Code, they must consult on the matter.

Codes currently in place include:

  • Code of Programme Standards
  • General & Children's Commercial Communications Codes
  • Code of Fairness, Impartiality & Objectivity in News & Current Affairs
  • Access Rules 

The BAI website has further information on the Codes currently in place.
