PRP Launches Third Public Call For Information

The Press Recognition Panel has launched a third public call for information running until 23 September about IMPRESS’ application for recognition.

At a PRP Board meeting last week, the PRP announced it had decided to defer its decision on IMPRESS’ application for recognition to allow a third call for information to take place following concerns about process raised by the News Media Association and other industry bodies.

The PRP has now launched a third call for information. The PRP said:  “In accordance with our commitment to operating as openly and transparently as possible, this call for information seeks any additional information relating to IMPRESS’ application as it now stands, and in the light of the PRP’s recently published indicative interpretation of some terms of the Royal Charter.

“As it is not our practice to consult or seek additional public input when we consider how to interpret elements of the Charter, the call for information is not intended to provide a general opportunity for respondents to comment on the PRP’s indicative view.

“For more information about contacting us or sharing your views on any aspect of work see the ways to connect section of our website.

“This third call for information is open from 24 August 2016 – 23 September 2016.”
