BAFE is not a trade association. The major difference between BAFE and trade associations is that a company is not paying to become a member of an industry group. Instead a company is proving their competence by being independently assessed and Third Party Certificated. Only then are companies allowed to become BAFE Registered.
BAFE do not have members, the BAFE Register is a publicly accessible database of competent companies verified by BAFE and Third Party Certificated via UKAS Accredited Third Party Certification Bodies.
