The making of the Code began in June 2001 on the first in a row workshop with around 30 journalists dealing with several main issues. The Code was finished in February 2002 when the final text was presented to the public.
Other than professionals who directly participated in the workshops, ANEM also included the wider public in the process. The first working version of documents was sent to numerous media, associations and organizations of civil sector. ANEM had invited all interested to read the document and send their comments, suggestions and proposals. The public debate on the Code was thus opened, and all comments filed and presented to participants in the last workshop, after which some of them were adopted and included in the final version of the text.
The Code is a live document and is open for public discussion at all times.
