Reporting harmful content

ISPA is a member of the Internet Watch Foundation, the UK internet hotline for the public to report their inadvertent exposure to online child sexual abuse content hosted anywhere in the world, non-photographic child sexual abuse images hosted in the UK and criminally obscene adult content hosted in the UK.

The IWF works in partnership with the online industry, government, police and the public. As a result of this self-regulatory approach, less than 1% of online child sexual abuse content has been hosted in the UK since 2003, down from 18% in 1997.
