BDA Aims and Objectives

  • Establish and improve Codes of Practice
  • Liaise with Government bodies and Institutions
  • Disseminate information to interested parties
  • Compile relevant statistical support
  • To collaborate with other related associations both in the UK and abroad to advance our industry.
  • Promote the industry

The BDA sets out to achieve the above through a very varied programme of activity, which includes regular full and sub committee meetings; industry seminars; webinars; daily contact with its membership and others organisations within the sector.
