Ten years ago the Prospective Retrospective Memory Questionnaire (PRMQ) was specifically developed to assess perceived problems concerning both episodic memory and memory for future intentions. Since then, various PRMQ translations have been carried out. These previous studies of this selfreport measure showed not only good psychometric properties, but also a crossculturally robust underlying factor structure. The PRMQ has also been used in many clinical studies. The aforementioned findings were the reason to present and test the Dutch translation of the PRMQ and compare its psychometric properties with that of previous studies. The analyses involved both nonclinical (N = 425) and clinical (N = 217) participants. The results confirmed the previously reported underlying structure of the PRMQ, the good internal consistency, and the validity of this measure. Therefore, we decided to also present normative data of this new translation. Possible future uses and sensitivity issues are discussed.
