Stakeholder Consultations

New BSA guidelines are produced via a rigorous process of internal review and external peer review before being offered for stakeholder (public) consultation. The full process is described here. Stakeholder consultations are open for a period of two months and the BSA advertise this as widely as possible through its own and partner channels. Submissions to a consultation should be formatted as requested by the BSA. Given the volume of responses, unformatted or late submissions may not be processed. We welcome responses from all individuals, whether BSA members or not. The responses are anonymised by the Professional Guidance Group (PGG) prior to provision of an aggregated response to the authors. Following a stakeholder consultation, the PGG assess whether the authors of a document have dealt with comments sufficiently.

We strongly advise all respondents to provide evidence that support their statements. Whilst personal opinions may be acceptable, the authors are less likely to consider submissions without rationale or evidence.
