Becoming a member of the British Ceramic Confederation (BCC) provides great value, giving you access to our ongoing work and support around a range of business-critical issues facing the UK ceramics sector. 

How to join


Full Membership is available to any manufacturer of ceramics in the UK, and provides access to periodic updates, and help and advice on all sorts of areas that may affect your company, including energy and emissions, and health and safety. You will also benefit from having input into BCC’s representation both at UK and European level with officials and politicians, and also from BCC’s participation in groups such as the Energy Intensive Users’ Group and the CBI Minerals Group. There are numerous other benefits – please check out our “Benefits of BCC Membership” presentation for more information. It is also possible to become a member of BCC for Climate Change Levy or Agreement (CCL/ CCA) purposes only, at a reduced cost.
