BPA Makes Rule Changes
Application forfeiture/withdrawal. Applicants for membership in BPA Worldwide have 12 months to complete their initial audit. BPA rules allow applicants to promote their application during this time. If, for any reason, an application forfeits or withdraws, current policy states that the status of the application will be posted on the BPA website for six months.
After reviewing input from advisory boards around the world, the board voted to amend policy wherein notice of application forfeit or withdrawal will appear on the BPA website for same tenure as the application was posted. For example, if an application is withdrawn after nine months, notice of withdrawal will be posted to the website for the next nine months.
