The Association for the Protection of journalistic ethics (APJE) and its executive body The Press Council of the Slovak Republic are active in the field of ethical self-regulation of journalists since 2001. The Press Council adresses complaints about the possible violation of journalistic ethics, as well as motions concerning restraining the journalists’ access to information.

The foundation contract of the Association for the Protection of journalistic ethics in the Slovak republic was signed on October 2, 2001 by representatives of the Slovak Syndicate of Journalists and Slovak Press Publishers’ Association. The Association for the Protection of journalistic ethics is led by an assembly of representatives, in which each of the member organisations has three members. The leaders of both organisations regularly take turns heading APJE.

The Press Council was constituted in April 2002 and consists of seven members – in accordance with the approved STATUTE – figures of the public, cultural and social life that are not actively working as journalists or publishers and do not represent any political party.

Since its formation, the Press Council follows the Code of Journalistic Ethics.
