PMI Challenge to APM Application for Royal Charter: dismissed

APM LogoWe reported in a News Digest post back in April 2014, that PMI had challenged APM’s application to the UK Privy Council by way of a Judicial Review, as per this statement from APM.

At the time we were not clear on what good PMI hoped to achieve for the PM profession, other than protecting their own commercial interests.

UPDATE: Judge dismisses the PMI claim on all grounds:

APM Chief Executive Andrew Bragg has issued a statement concluding:

“Having reserved judgment at the substantive hearing of the Judicial Review claim which ended on 9 July 2014 at the High Court in London, the Judge, Mr Justice Mitting, handed down his judgment on 17 July 2014.

The Judge dismissed the claim on all grounds”.

We hope that the much needed development and recognition of the PM profession can now move forward very soon.
