BHBIA

Guidelines Alerts

The BHBIA provides a ‘Guidelines Alert’ service to inform business intelligence professionals about changes in the legal and ethical environment that may impact on your work.

Alerts are published on the BHBIA website on an ad hoc basis, and BHBIA members are notified by email when a new alert is available.

Alerts are provided when there is a significant development in legal/ethical guidance that cannot wait until the next update of the BHBIA Guidelines. We also include resources and publications from events led by the Ethics & Compliance Committee.
