BAFA has established a mechanism for discussing and deciding future changes to this book. Each organisation affiliated to BAFA has a voice on the Rules Committee. You may make suggestions for changes either to your organisation's representative(s) or to the Chairman of the Rules Committee. Suggestions may be made at any time, but to be eligible for consideration for the following year they must be received by 1st October.
