In these circumstances, the decision will have been put to the BASIS Board (or the relevant sub-committee). Any endorsement by BASIS represents the view of BASIS as an organisation and should not be taken as representing the view of each and every member. BASIS will not list any member organisation, nor their logo, without obtaining permission in advance.
These terms & conditions were last updated in March 2021 and are subject to review annually. As we are based in England then the jurisdiction is the Laws of England and Wales.
