The Association of Professional Political Consultants (APPC) is a United Kingdom organisation, founded in 1994, which represents firms engaged in lobbying activities.

It was established by five firms of lobbyists following the 1994 Cash-for-questions affair,[1] and now has 70 member firms.

Today the UK lobbying sector is self-regulated by the UK Public Affairs Council, of which the APPC was a co-founder (alongside the Chartered Institute of Public Relations and the Public Relations Consultants Association) in 2010.[2]
