BSI Code of Business Ethics

The British Standards Institution (BSI) is the chartered body for UK National Standards. Sir John Wolfe-Barry, the designer of London’s Tower Bridge, called the first meeting over a century ago and a Royal Charter was awarded in 1929.

The Animal Behaviour and Training Council Ltd successfully applied for membership of the Institution based on its aims, constitution and procedures in March 2015.

Membership of the BSI clearly demonstrates the ABTC’s serious commitment to challenging mediocrity and achieving excellence through the application of quality concepts, principles and techniques.
