Antitrust Policy Statement

National Public Records Research Association is organized to promote, develop and maintain the advancement of the public records research profession. NPRRA is not intended to, and may not, play any role in the competitive decisions of its members or their employees, or in any way restrict competition in any aspect of the public records profession.

The board of directors through this statement of policy makes clear its unequivocal support for the policy of competition served by the antitrust laws and its uncompromising intent to comply strictly in all respects with those laws. It is the individual responsibility of every member of NPRRA to be guided by the antitrust laws. It shall be the special responsibility of any committee chairmen and association officers to assure that this policy is known and adhered to in the course of activities pursued under their leadership.

It is not NPRRA’s role to act as an arbiter or judge of competitive conduct of industry members. As such, this statement of antitrust policy is not a mechanism through which members should charge another member with alleged illegal action.
