EFCSN opens round of applications on May 1, 2024

The European Fact-Checking Standards Network (EFCSN) will open a new round of applications on May 1, 2024. After four previous rounds of applications, the network currently consists of 44 verified member organisations from all across Europe.

European fact-checking organisations wishing to join the EFCSN can submit their applications from May 1, 2024 until May 31, midnight.

Verified members will be able to display an EFCSN badge on their websites, sending a sign to readers of their independence and integrity, while also gaining access to a network that offers opportunities for collaboration among fact-checkers, training sessions, and working collectively to hold policymakers and online platforms to account in the fight against misinformation.

The EFCSN is an association of fact-checking organisations committed to the highest standards of independence, transparency, and journalistic quality outlined in the European Code of Standards for Independent Fact-Checking Organisations. In order to join the network, fact-checking organisations must comply with all the requirements established in the European Code, which was published in September 2022.
