Supreme Court policy on audio recordings

Thu Dec 06 2007

A new policy has been issued that outlines the conditions that must be met by members of the media who wish to use tape recorders during court proceedings. This policy has been developed in the interest of ensuring the preparation of fair and accurate reports of those proceedings.

The policy applies to journalists who work for recognised media organisations and who can provide appropriate professional identification. Approval must be sought from the presiding judge, in advance, before a journalist is permitted to take a tape recording of court proceedings.

View�the ‘Tape Recording of Court Proceedings Policy’ on the Supreme Court’s web site for more information and for the application form that is to be used to seek approval.
