Public Affairs Register

The PRCA publishes, every quarter, a register of all members who practice public affairs, and in the case of consultancies the list of clients for whom they conduct public affairs.

This is done in accordance with our Codes of Conduct and Professional Charter by which all our members agree to abide. The Professional Charter and Codes of Conduct enshrine the commitment PRCA members make to transparent and ethical communications.

The most recent static PRCA Public Affairs register covering the period March - May 2016 can be found here:

The live PRCA Public Affairs Register can be searched below:


Consultancies, in-house teams and public affairs professionals that wish to sign up to the Register should speak to Nicholas Henry Dunn-McAfee.

Members of the PRCA can play a part in our active Public Affairs Group. The PRCA sends out a regular Public Affairs Group bulletin, informing members of our monthly events and the work done to represent our industry.


The PRCA, APPC and CIPR have worked together to produce a definition of lobbying for the Government to use for its proposed Statutory Register of Lobbyists.

You can find the Definition here.

We have also prepared an FAQ to help you understand how we reached our definition.
