The PRP was established following the Leveson Inquiry (2011–2012), a judicial public inquiry chaired by Lord Justice Leveson into the culture, practices and ethics of the British press following the News International phone hacking scandal.
The PRP's function is to carry out activities relating to the recognition of press regulators.
The new system of independent press regulation received all-party support when it was devised. The system was designed to protect the public as well as promote the freedom of the press.
