  • Observe the confidentiality of non-public information acquired as a Committee member and not disclose to any other persons such information that might be harmful to the Trust and BFEA.
  • Recognise that BFEA-related contractors work for the Trust and if any requests are made of these contractors, that such requests shall not unduly add to their workload or conflict with Trust processes or policies.
  • Make every effort to support the Trust’s work to bring and maintain a high level of national consistency across the BFEA entrant and judging experience.
