How to join
We welcome any eligible business wishing to become certified and encourage you to talk to us to get advice and guidance on what’s involved.
Before you start, we would encourage you to read through the Scheme Rules and relevant module documents to understand the requirements and decide if membership is right for your business. If you have any questions, you can call our Technical Advisor to talk in more detail.
The application process
Once you’ve decided to go ahead, you’ll need to fill in the pre-assessment application form, which you can find here. The BMPA will check and then send your completed form to the independent, external Audit Service Provider.
The Auditors will contact you within 5 working days to quote audit costs and schedule the first audit date with you. They may also ask for more information if necessary.
An initial audit will be carried out within 6 months of your application.
