Business Update

During the containment of the coronavirus, the PPMA office will remain open with a much-reduced headcount as some staff will be working from home. 

We have also taken the decision to postpone all PPMA training days and seminars with immediate effect until 30 April 2020.  

Further updates will be available on this website in due course. You can also contact us here.
