BAI Right of Reply Scheme
The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland’s ‘Right of Reply Scheme’ came into effect in May 2011. It provides for the broadcast of a Right of Reply Statement that will facilitate the correction of incorrect information which has been broadcast and which has resulted in a person’s honour or reputation being impugned.
Further to the requirements of the Broadcasting Act 2009, the scheme provides an opportunity for a person to exercise his/her right to the correction of incorrect information without recourse to legal proceedings which may prove time-consuming and costly.
