31 days till Brexit - CIPR issues new guidance for members

The CIPR has published a new guide designed to help public relations professionals prepare for Brexit.

The guide delivers information relevant to the profession on matters such as data protection, copyright law and travel. It also highlights the role public relations professionals can play in helping businesses prepare for every eventuality, particularly if the UK leaves with no deal.

The practical guidance has been published amidst growing political uncertainty, ahead of the UK's scheduled exit from the European Union on 29 March.
