What happens after you submit the form

Once you have submitted the form, a member of our team will review it and consider what action needs to be taken.

At this stage, the digital imprint rules are new and not all campaigners will be familiar with how to meet them.

The information you have provided will help us to make sure the rules are being followed, and will be very helpful to us in reviewing the success of these rules.

As a first step, we may contact campaigners who have published digital election campaign material without an imprint and ask them to include an imprint. We may ask them to remove the content immediately if they are unable to do so.

Where appropriate, we may need to open an investigation. This could lead to a fine. 

If we open an investigation, the outcome will be published once it has concluded.

We are unable to respond individually to every report that we receive.
