What We Do
Since 1991, Members have worked to review the impact of proposed European legislation on the press, and then express an opinion to legislators, politicians and opinion-formers with a view to influencing the content of final regulations. The objective has always been to encourage good law-making for the media industry.
26 Chairmen and CEOs of the leading media corporations from across Europe make up the European Publishers Council. EPC’s members have been helping to encourage good, effective law-making for the media industry since 1991. Christian Van Thillo, Chief Executive Officer of De Persgroep, is the Chair of EPC since 21 November 2014.
