MOSCOW, October 25 (RIA Novosti) – Board members of the International Association of Business Communicators/Russia (IABC/Russia) have proposed establishing a national effectiveness rating for public relations companies in Russia, the association said in a news release on Thursday.

The proposal was made on October 16 but has only been announced now.

The introduction of a number of internationally accepted non-financial indicators into the rating system will help assess PR companies’ market positions and determine their effective weight and standing, the release said.

IABC/Russia was established by Vitaly Rasnitsyn in 2001. The association’s president is Natalia Mandrova.
