The Ferret has an editorial committee which is ultimately responsible for all decisions about what gets published on The Ferret.
The committee is made up of the journalist directors, plus some key staff. You can find out more about our Journalist Directors here:
The Ferret guards the independence of the editorial committee very carefully. We do not accept funding or do other deals with organisations that could influence the decisions made by this committee.
Before a story is commissioned it must be approved by the committee.
Before a story is published it is normally checked by at least three people from the Editorial Committee.
After publication, any changes, other than very minor ones, will only be made in accordance with our Corrections and updates policy
Reader directors and our independent regulator, Impress, may propose changes to a story after it is published in response to formal complaints.
