Representatives of online platforms, leading social networks, advertisers and advertising industry agreed to a self-regulatory Code of Practice to address the spread of online disinformation and fake news. Each platform committed to the Code presented its individual road-map and committed to publish monthly reports on the implementation of the Code of Practice.
Since its initiation the Code of Practice, or CoP, has expanded to include members of the advertising industry and trade associations.
In June of 2020, under the 10 June 2020 Joint Communication “Tackling COVID-19 disinformation – Getting the facts, platform signatories began producing monthly reports specifically on their actions to promote authoritative health content and reduce disinformation related to the pandemic.
The most recent set of reports, published in February 2021, can be found here.
