Welcome

Welcome

The German Public Relations Council (DRPR) is the voluntary institution of self-regulation of the PR profession. Our main responsibility is to identify deficiencies and instances of misconduct in the way organizations communicate with the public and issue a reprimand if necessary. The German PR Council deals with all the cases that are brought to its attention as complaints, as well as taking up cases on its own initiative (e.g. due to media coverage). We invite you to find out about our work on this website and contact us if you notice any misconduct in the PR field. The website is not yet completely filled with content. Should you require any particular information, you are very welcome to contact our office.

So far, this Website isn’t fully translated into English and it still has some blanks. So you will still find some German texts.
