BBC Response to Dame Janet Smith Review published

Following the publication of the Dame Janet Smith report in February 2016 the BBC published a progress report in July 2016 and undertook to provide a response to Dame Janet’s recommendations by the end of the year.

This has now been published and sets out the action the BBC has taken to address the recommendations made in a range of external reports and reviews, including the Respect at Work review of 2013, the GoodCorporation review of Whistleblowing and Child Protection Policies and Processes of 2015 and Dame Janet Smith’s Review of 2016. Also published is the further external review and audit of the BBC’s policies and processes, undertaken by GoodCorporation, that reports on the progress made since 2015.
