International Fact checking Networking

The International Fact-Checking Network is "a forum for fact-checkers worldwide". It is hosted by North American Poynter Institute, which provides jouirnalism training and supports related initiatives. The home page is here
Ther are currently 36 member agencies from 26 countries in the Network (I did that count very quickly, I may be one out). They have to sign up to this Code of Principles. These are agencies that large organisations (like Google) and (in some countries) politicians may consult about concerns with fake news etc.
