Public Affairs: APPC reviews client register

The Association of Professional Political Consultants is reviewing the scope of its register in a move that could see public affairs agencies declaring fewer clients.

The APPC currently requires member agencies to register all clients for whom they provide public affairs services. But some members have asked for clarification.

In response, the APPC is now proposing that agencies should only declare work which entails 'contact with institutions of government'. This would mean agencies no longer have to declare clients for whom they provide only political monitoring services.

APPC chair Helen Johnson said members were being consulted on the proposals.
