Key Activities

BASA is run for and by its members organising a wide programme of events and activities aimed at promoting the legitimate interests of its members and to enhance the prosperity of the industry.

Technical Programmes

BASA provides the voice for our industry. Our working parties staffed by technical experts from member companies with support from experienced consultants, consider and contribute towards a wide range of technical issues including national and international standards, legislation and regulation, and inter-industry co-operation. BASA sits on many relevant standards committees within BSI, ISO and CEN and is regularly consulted by government on industry matters.

European Representation

Since 1974 BASA has been one of the most active partners within FEICA, the European Federation of the Adhesives Industry. As an increasing amount of regulation affecting our industry is derived from the European Commission, BASA’s role ensures that UK industry concerns are strongly represented at the European level.
