BCA Autumn Business Seminar

BCA Business Seminar 9th November 2017

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) becomes law on May 25th 2018. This will change how businesses can handle customer information.


Controlling your product sales channels and retail pricing was covered at this seminar.

Get this wrong and you could face substantial fines and unenforceable contract terms.

Chris Weaver is a solicitor at Paynes Hicks Beach where he advises on commercial and regulatory aspects of data protection law in addition to employment related issues.


His talk on GDPR covered the following issues:

  • Key changes to be implemented by the GDPR
  • Potential implications and areas of interest for BCA members
  • When will changes take effect
  • Penalties for non-compliance
  • Will it apply to UK businesses post-Brexit
  • What businesses should be doing now to prepare
  • Q&A


Do you want to stop unauthorised re-sellers or prevent your products being sold through sales channels such as Ebay or Amazon?

Are you concerned that your brand is being damaged by re-sellers selling your products at much higher/lower prices than your RRP?

What action can you take and what controls are available to you without breaking the law?

BCA Buying Group launched

We delighted to announce the BCA Buying Group.





We have added even more benefits to being a BCA Member!

We have teamed up with the nice people at Joined Up Thinking and launched our very own ‘Buying Group’ to make available cost savings to all BCA members. They have a database of 100’s of suppliers and 1000’s of products and services and constantly benchmark deals to make sure our members will always receive the very best value for money.

They can help with just about everything you purchase, from fuel cards, stationery, utilities, insurance, pest control and coffee machines – and everything in between! Most (if not all!) of the deals sourced for you are exclusively available to our association members, and are not available to single stand-alone businesses. Also, they will be very soon adding more new products and services just for our members, so please keep checking back!

As a member of BCA you can list free of charge on the portal your company should you so wish. If so, just drop us an email.

What’s more, they have agreed that you can use their ‘Invoice Watch’ service free of charge as many times as you like. All you have to do is send them a copy invoice for a recent product or service you have purchased, and they will check to make sure you received the best value for money.

At the very least, the research they carry out for you will show if you currently buy at the right price, and if you should consider changing suppliers!

They are also happy to help source any products or services for us that may not already be listed - just drop them a note at any time.

Full details can be found on our new secure portal at www.bcaportal.co.uk. It is password protected, but just click the link in the homepage to order yours now.

Their services are 100% free of charge to our members and 100% secure, and you only have to take their recommendations should you wish to do so. Think of the BCAPortal as your very own company buyer!
