The BCI Corporate Partnership enables organisations to work more closely with the BCI to help raise the profile of BCM as a discipline and to promote the highest standards of professional competence in BCM in organisations working in any sector worldwide. More
Joining the BCI
Individual membership of the BCI is open to BC professionals at all levels of experience. Statutory membership of the BCI provides internationally recognised status and demonstrates both professional and technical competency in BC. Increasingly employers ask for BCI membership when employing new business continuity staff and throughout the world major companies, when issuing tender documents for business continuity consultancy and services, insist on BCI membership.
This Code sets out the professional standards required by the Institute as a condition of membership. It applies to members of all grades, including Students, and Affiliates.
Within this document, the term “relevant authority” is used to identify the person or organisation which has authority over your activity as an individual. If you are a practising professional, this is normally an employer or client. If you are a student, this is normally an academic institution.
The Code governs your personal conduct as an individual member of the BCI and not the nature of business or ethics of the relevant authority. It will, therefore, be a matter of you exercising your personal judgement in meeting the Code’s requirements.
