Business Professional Certificate
The Business Professional Certificate (BPC) is a business improvement performance scheme that gives recognition to technology companies who prove to be reputable suppliers, committed to higher standards.
The BPC is primarily aimed at small and medium-sized organisations within the technology sector that are looking to continually improve their internal processes and procedures and to demonstrate an advanced level of professionalism.
The ethos behind the BPC is that it is generated from within techUK membership – 'by members for members' – by people who are already creating and sharing best practice and who are motivated to improve standards and ultimately the reputation of the industry. Importantly, it is increasingly recognised assurance of quality by government.
