Central Government Communications Guidelines

These guidelines are based on the work of a working group appointed by the Prime Minister’s Office in autumn 2008 to review central government communications. The working group’s task was to examine the extent to which the 2002 Recommendation on Central Government Communication required revision. In addition, the working group’s task was to prepare a proposal on the principles and practices to be followed in central government communications. Separate, revised guidelines on communications in crises and emergencies were issued in autumn 2007.
