10 Dec 2021

In the light of the latest announcement by the Prime Minister on 8 December that from 13 December office workers who can work from home should do so, BSB staff will be working from home from that date unless they have a business or personal reason to come into the office. Meanwhile, we shall continue, as much as possible, to provide a “business-as-usual” service but anyone needing to post us any original certificates is advised to contact us via email or phone first to check what they should do.

The Bar Standards Board will close for the Christmas and New Year holidays at 5pm on Thursday 23 December 2021 and will reopen at 9am on Tuesday 4 January 2022. Staff will not be expected to work during this period.
