Dear Ceri Gibbons,
Thank you for your email of 07 April 2021 in which you requested the following information:
“In March 2019 your department downgraded and archived Joint Doctrine Publication on Media
Operations JDP 3-45.1 (2012)
1. An up to date list of MOD JDP or JSP publications on Media Operations since 2012.
2. A copy of the most current document.”
I am treating your correspondence as a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act
I am writing to confirm that the MOD holds information on the subject you have requested. Firstly, I
should explain that whilst the archived copy of the Joint Doctrine Publication, JDP 3-45.1, referenced in
your email stated that the document will become a Joint Tactics Techniques and Procedures (JTTP)
document, this was not the case. The annotation on the archived edition has been amended to reflect
this, and we apologise for any confusion this may have caused. I can confirm that JDP 3-45.1 was the
only publication regarding Media Operations produced, having now been subsumed into Annex D of the
Allied Joint Publication, AJP-3.10 Information Operations
. A copy of this Annex, titled Media
, has been attached.
If you have any queries regarding the content of this letter, please contact this office in the first
instance. Following this, if you wish to complain about the handling of your request, or the content of
this response, you can request an independent internal review by contacting the Information Rights

. Please note that any request for an internal review should be made within 40 working
days of the date of this response.
If you remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you may raise your complaint directly to the
Information Commissioner under the provisions of Section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act. Please
note that the Information Commissioner will not normally investigate your case until the MOD internal
review process has been completed. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. Further details of
