Relations with the media

The Executive Committee, in consultation with the Chair as necessary, will usually be responsible for handling media enquiries about OPIMEC and its work. Members should not, therefore, comment on OPIMEC advice unless it is in the public domain.

Members who are approached directly by the media with enquiries relating to OPIMEC business should contact the Executive Committee in the first place, for advice on handling.

Members may, in the course of their work, address conferences/seminars or have other speaking engagements at which the media might be present. In these circumstances, members should take care to protect the interests of OPIMEC.
