Contacting Stakeholders

An important part of our work as public affairs professionals consists of reaching out to policy-makers, journalists or other stakeholders. This should, however, always be done in strict compliance with the EPACA Code of Conduct.

The Ground Rules

  • Identify yourself by name and by company
  • Declare the interest represented
  • Neither intentionally misrepresent your status nor the nature of your inquiries nor create any false impression in relation thereto
  • Neither directly nor indirectly misrepresent links with EU institutions
  • Not disseminate false or misleading information knowingly or recklessly and exercise proper care to avoid doing so inadvertently
