Throughout the course of each year, PIPA holds a series of four Code forums to provide an opportunity for company representatives to meet on a regular basis to discuss issues related to the Code and other legislation regulating promotional/non-promotional activities.

The first of the four PIPA Code forums for 2017 was held on 27th March. However, we are offering PIPA members the opportunity to attend the remaining forums of the year at the reduced fee of £600 + VAT.

The Forums are facilitated by Ros Henley, CompliMed Ltd and Bisola Idris, PIPA Code Coordinator.

Agendas for each meeting usually include:

  • A review of recent case rulings by the PMCPA and MHRA
  • Sharing of best practice and experience
  • Discussion/impact assessment of legislation which could have bearing on Code-related activities
  • Presentations by third party subject matter experts invited to attend
  • Compilation of questions to be posed to the PMCPA where relevant

Members of the Forum are expected to represent their company and have day-to-day experience of working with the Code. Ideally they will be a Code specialist involved in regular copy approval of material produced by their company.

Please note that the Forum is not intended as a training course, although it is hoped it will lead to increased knowledge for those attending. Active participation in all discussions is expected from all members. Each member should be prepared to lead a discussion topic at least once during the course of the year.

Membership is by annual subscription from a member company. Each member company shall send one representative to each meeting. Meetings will take place on a quarterly basis in March, June, September and December. 

Places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
