Press Recognition Panel announces that it will assess IMPRESS’s application for recognition at public meeting.

The PRP Board has said that it will consider IMPRESS’s application for recognition at a public meeting on 23 August 2016.  The meeting will start at 10am and is taking place at The Buckingham Room, De Vere West One, 9-10 Portland Place, London W1B 1PR.

In order to enable what would otherwise be a confidential item to be discussed in public, the Board has determined that, exceptionally, papers relating to the IMPRESS application will not be published in advance of the meeting.

All the information received during the calls for information will be published on the PRP’s website within 30 days of the Board’s decision meeting, alongside the IMPRESS application, the PRP’s assessment report and the Board’s final decision.

In order to be granted recognition, IMPRESS’s application must demonstrate that IMPRESS meets the 29 recognition criteria (numbered 1 to 23) listed in the Royal Charter.
