Since the beginnings, APRI understands the importance that transparency has in order to perform this profession. The implications in the public life of work of a lobbyist require high transparency standards in the development of the relationships with the State administration.
In this sense, APRI has launched the self-regulation of the industry through the composition of an intern Code of Conduct that is signed by all the members.
The APRI Code of Conduct was passed on 2011 and is similar to the one that is signed by the lobbyists who are registered in the Transparency Register of Brussels, jointly managed by the European Parliament and the European Commission.
Every article of this Code of Conduct includes an essential aspect to guarantee the development of lobbying by applying good practices at any time.
Everyone who might want to join APRI shall sign these seven principles, which shape the Code of Conduct driven by the Association, and shall commit to fulfill them.
