In July 2013, a committee of the Privy Council unanimously recommended that a Royal Charter should be granted to APM. This decision was challenged in the courts.
The Court of Appeal handed down judgement in January 2016 rejecting PMI’s appeal. The Court of Appeal also refused permission for PMI to appeal further to the Supreme Court.
The time period for PMI to apply direct to the Supreme Court for leave to appeal has now expired. This means that the current judicial process has been concluded.
APM will now focus on the processes required to be granted, and to implement, a Royal Charter. We will notify further developments as soon as we are able.
