APRI Code of Conduct
From the start, APRI’s aim was to adopt a Code of Conduct that would set common minimum standards for all members in order to build transparency and fair play, the fundamental pillars of APRI since its foundation. In January 2011, this Code of Conduct was approved, similar to the one signed by lobbyists registered in the Transparency Registry in Brussels, managed jointly by the European Parliament and the European Commission. Each article of this Code of Conduct contains an essential aspect to ensure the development of lobbying activity by applying good practices at all times.
