Time’s Up UK outlines urgent need for new independent body to improve standards of behaviour in the creative industries

Time’s Up UK, which has campaigned to improve standards of behaviour across film and TV over these last five years, called for the creation of an independent standards authority back in 2021. Since then Time’s Up UK has spearheaded this initiative supported by the Creative Industries round table set up by the then Secretary of State in the wake of yet further media stories about the abuse that Rebecca Ferguson suffered. The proposed Creative Industries Standards Authority, CIISA, will cover film, television, music and theatre. To date all of the key stakeholders have and are supporting this crucial intervention. These latest disclosures add yet more urgency to the need for CIISA.
