About the Technical Service
Many BA members see the Technical Service as a key benefit of membership. We offer one-on-one advice on all regulatory, compliance and technical matters, included with your membership. Excellent contacts and a deep knowledgebase allow us to provide swift and authoritative advice on everything from tariffs to fatigue testing, plus early intelligence on standards development, anti-dumping, Brexit, safety issues and more.
The Technical Service also plays a significant role in the BA’s advocacy work, providing expertise for detailed policy development and proposals – as well as flagging and analysing regulatory developments which may pose a threat, or present opportunities, for the cycle industry.
We regret that the Technical Service cannot answer queries from companies who are not Bicycle Association members, nor from members of the public. The BA Guides published below may however be useful to address some popular topics.
The comprehensive technical support offered by the BA’s Technical Service covers the following areas:
