Editorial policies translate RNZ’s Charter and legislative responsibilities, services, standards and expectations to the workplace to help staff make reasoned, timely and consistent decisions.  

Much more than just the mandated requirements of RNZ, they incorporate values concerned with social responsibility, ethical considerations and a sense of fair play and decency. They inform and guide our professional judgments, but also reassure the people to whom we are accountable, our audience, that their trust and expectations are not misplaced.  

Below you can read the RNZ editorial policy that applies to all RNZ programmes and services for New Zealand or international audiences whether made internally or by an external contractor. 

We will also post below any other relevant documents that review or guide our work.
