Monthly Code case updates

The PMCPA publish 180+ alleged Code breaches each year which set precedence for all future materials and activities.  It is critical that you read these cases and implement any learning points.  Our popular Code case update webinars summarise all the cases – saving you hours of reading – plus you can discuss Code issues to see how other companies are tackling certain situations.

The webinars run every month and you can access them through an annual subscription.
