If you have a criminal conviction and wish to discuss this before making an application, please contact us.
What are the benefits of membership?
That largely depends on the member. Using gym membership as an analogy, join, pay your subscription, use the gymnasium and pool regularly, take full advantage of the facilities and you’ll more than likely get great benefit. On the other hand, join, pay your subscription, never go and it’s unlikely you’ll see any benefit at all.
The same applies to BiKBBI membership. First and foremost the

How long does membership last?
Are there discounts available for membership?
The simple answer is unfortunately no. The BiKBBI is a not-for- profit registered organisation, so there’s no margin for discounts.
What happens if my application is rejected?
Before making your application, make sure you meet the entry criteria. In the event your application is rejected, you will be issued a refund of money paid, less a £30 administration charge.
I was a previous member and let my membership lapse. Can I rejoin?
Yes, simply contact us for information on how you can re-join.
There’s no need to complete an online application again, although we will confirm previously submitted information when you contact us
I was a previous member but my membership was cancelled by the BiKBBI. Can I rejoin?
Please contact us to discuss, but it does depend on the circumstances in which your membership was cancelled.
I’ve opted to by for accreditation by monthly Direct Debit – how does this work?
By opting to spread the cost of BiKBBI accreditation, you are committing to the entire accreditation cost. Like a mobile phone contract, if you choose to end membership early your membership fee is still applicable and you will be liable for full repayment.
There is a one-off £30 administration fee for all Direct Debits. This is paid for on application by credit or debit card. The annual fee is then divided over 11 months once your membership commences… We’ll send the Direct Debit mandate for your completion once you’ve made the initial application. Direct Debits are a convenient way to spread the cost of accreditation,
What do I receive when membership is granted?
We’ll send you a member welcome pack, which includes an ID card & lanyard, together with your certificate of accreditation.
You’ll also receive a van sticker, which we encourage you to use. You’ll also receive a username and password for the BiKBBI members website, which is your portal for all things BiKBBI related.
Can I use the BiKBBI logo?
Absolutely Yes! You can download the logo via the members’ website for use on a number of formats, including clothing, digital and printed matter including websites, business
