An ABC Magazine audit reassures media buyers and advertisers that your circulation data can be trusted and helps you trade more efficiently.
Our robust audit to industry agreed standards is available for Consumer Magazines, Business Magazines and Annuals and can include your Print circulation, your Digital circulation or a combination of the two.
We work with the UK's leading publishers providing confidence and trust for the magazine industry.

How much does it cost to be Audited by ABC?
The cost of an audit can vary depending on the size of your circulation and the different routes to market you have - but we like to say it typically costs less than one full page advert in one issue of your publication per year.
ABC is a non profit distributing company and all our running costs are covered by our members in the form of an annual subscription fee. We also have a one-off joining fee to cover the administration costs of setting up your product and initial consultation and aftercare.
