Performance Standards and Targets
We aim to provide prompt, efficient and, where possible, improved services to the media and the public.

Issue of press releases and press photos
All press releases and photos are issued to the media via the internet. Journalists have quick and easy access to the archives round the clock.

Dealing with enquiries from the media
Enquiries will be answered immediately by the Duty Officers. When an answer is not readily available, the Duty Officers will endeavour to reply on the same day unless research for the requested information requires more time.

Arranging media facilities
When the Department is requested to arrange media facilities, an officer will contact the journalist or media organisation within one working day of receipt of the request and will follow the matter through.

Assistance to Hong Kong-based Mainland and foreign media, visiting journalists and film crews
When the Department is approached for assistance, an officer will be assigned to handle the request. The journalist/organisation will be contacted within one working day of receipt of the request.

Uploading information onto ISD home page

  • Major press releases will be uploaded onto the Government web site at the same time they are issued to the media.
  • Information on new publications will be renewed once a week.
