We also post a notice on the LASBM members' site, asking members to let us know (privately) if they have any concerns about the company applying. Any concerns would be passed to the company to resolve prior to continuing with the application process.
In order to expedite the application you will be invoiced at the rate applicable (currently £500 + VAT for 12 months) and requested to pay as soon as possible. This is to ensure companies are awarded the status promptly, on receipt of satisfactory references. In the event of the company failing to meet the standards or wishing to withdraw prior to the award we would issue a full refund.
