Maintaining robust protection systems and taking action against attempts to circumvent them is not enough. Effective action requires appropriate and effective legislation, implemented consistently across the EU. Through the activities of its members and the work of the Intelligence and Enforcement Committee AAPA is able to identify where legislation can be improved. AAPA maintains a dialogue with the EU institutions to promote effective legislation.
The Alliance meets 3 to 4 times a year at members’ premises. In addition information is exchanged by e-mail and conference call. The Intelligence and Enforcement Committee meets additionally as required.
All members of the Alliance are members of the AAPA Council. The Council determines the strategy of the Alliance. A small Management Group, comprising the two Vice Presidents and Executive Director, is responsible for the day to day operation of AAPA.
AAPA is incorporated as a company limited by guarantee in the UK (company no. 08186469.)
