Code of Practice

Code of Practice

Bicycle Association member companies must commit themselves to the Bicycle Association Code of Practice, which sets out high standards of professionalism, business ethics and legal compliance. A grace period for new members is available, during which they can leverage the BA’s support services to help raise their compliance to match that of the best professionals in the industry.

Phillip Darnton, the BA's executive director, explains:

"The Bicycle Association strives always to represent the best interests of the UK cycle industry – to government, stakeholders and the general public – with the highest standards of professionalism. It takes itself seriously, and expects to be taken seriously in return. We have set out a formal code of practice to which our members are committed. It embodies the professional standards to which we, and the whole industry, should be proud to adhere. The code is a straightforward, practical and tangible demonstration of our dedication to that professionalism in all our affairs. It underpins our advocacy work with government and other bodies, and it allows our members to make explicit their commitment to these shared professional business standards."
