To apply for membership of the BCA together with insurance, complete the BCA Membership Application Form and the Indemnity Insurance Application Form – below. If you also require Entity Cover as part of your application (please see page 7 of the Insurance Information Pack, which can be seen here) you can also do this as part of the online application. Please allow at least 2 full working days between submitting your application and when you want insurance cover to start. Additionally, if you are waiting for GCC registration and give us your permission within the application form, we will notify them direct once you are on cover with the BCA but you must make sure you have your full registration with them in place before starting to practise.
