Access Controlling Bodies

This class of membership is for non-membership based organisations that control access to a cave, mine, or underground site.

Note that a caving or mining club, or any organisation with their own membership structure and that conforms to our requirements as a club, which is also an Access Controlling Body should join as a club member and pay the Access Controlling Body supplement.


Access Controlling Body membership carries the membership benefit of public liability insurance for that organisation. The BCA will work on behalf of all our ACBs and represent their needs nationally wherever possible. ACBs will receive BCA communications as well as representation on BCA National Council.


The cost of Membership for Access Controlling Bodies is £60 per year.
