The British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) is a UK trade association based in Stevenage,[3] which represents companies involved in the aerosol supply chain, including suppliers of components and ingredients to fillers and marketers.[1]

History and objectives[edit]

Aerosol can structure

It was established in 1961.[1] 2008 marked 80 years since Rotheim's patent for aerosols was approved in the UK and BAMA as the trade association, marked this through a trade and consumer public relations programme and by producing a series of marketing materials for member companies.[citation needed] BAMA also provides information to local authorities, households and businesses on recycling aerosols.[4]

BAMA's aims are to:[1]

  • Promote the aerosol and encourage innovation
  • Set high standards in safety, good manufacturing practice and on environmental issues
  • Present industry’s view to legislators, the media and key opinion formers
