BQF (British Quality Foundation) is an independent, not-for-profit corporate membership organisation and was founded by the DTI and UK business leaders in 1993.
BQF’s members range from leading international companies to small firms and public sector bodies. Membership can be for a whole organisation, a division, a department or even a single unit, and there are different categories of membership depending on the size of organisation (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Gold Plus) and the level of service and benefits required. Premier members get benefits including best practice events and workshops.
