The International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) is an umbrella organization of news-checking organizations.[1] IFCN is part of The Poynter Institute. IFCN has held 5 international conferences as of 2018.[1] The IFCN has adopted a code of principles, which the European Commission regards as a model that should be followed.[2] The code of principles are:[3]

  1. A commitment to nonpartisanship and fairness
  2. A commitment to transparency of sources
  3. A commitment to transparency of funding & organization
  4. A commitment to transparency of methodology
  5. A commitment to open and honest corrections
