The PPA works with publishers and suppliers to develop and raise standards in the production of print and digital content. Through our committees and publicly-available guidelines we provide a forum for production issues relevant to multi-platform magazine brands.

Our worked is led by the Media Technical Group, whose work is based on a 10-point strategy that aims to promote, develop and maintain best-practice guidelines that support a multi-platform production workflow for publishers.
