International Review and Approval Service

Non-UK Review and Approval Service

The IPM have access to Review & Approval service to cover European Member States markets to support Members (and non-Members) following significant demand for the service to extend outside the UK.

This service is subject to different charges to the UK advice and quotations are supplied only on request, subject to a brief supplied. 

Levels of Advice

At the IPM we recognise the levels of enquiry will vary from what’s possible to execution of agreed campaigns. We have therefore tailored our European Review and Approval service to cover: 

  • IPM Members can access information about permissible activity advice including local market conditions including market exclusions for certain mechanics or activation to assist in making key brand activation decisions. This information can be accessed by non-Members and this information is subject to a charge. Especially useful for pitches and general advice on cross border promotions. 
  • Full service review of all terms and conditions, materials and local market licenses as required.

Services are quoted per campaign, per market with full breakdown of local market fees, available on request and will include management charge plus local legal costs. All quotes are based on written briefing or sight of promotional material and terms.

Please note: IPM current charges for UK do not apply for work outside the UK and no bulk purchases can be used against EU Legal enquiries. 

Turnaround times for these markets can also be far longer than our UK service. Please advise any critical timelines when enquiring. 

Services and Markets

All European markets are covered; other markets can also be advised on – just let us know where your activity is planned for and we’ll be able to advise. Please note that we do not advise on USA, Canada or Mexico. 

Who provides advice? 

Our European Review and Approval Service is provided by our legal team who in turn work with specialist lawyers in each market.

Talk to our Legal Advisory Services team at the IPM on 020 3848 0444 or drop us a line on legal@theipm.org.uk quoting 'European Legal' for more information and quotations. 


Please note that all advice is based on the briefing received. Some enquiries may take longer than standard UK advice, dependent on the complexity of the request and response from local markets.  We strongly advise that you provide as much information as possible at the early stage to enable us to advise you appropriately. All services will be quoted and Purchase Orders required to progress.

Please note that this legal service does not fall within UK bulk rates for IPM Members. The IPM is a GALA Associate Member.
