British Aggregates Association (BAA)

Since its formation in 1999 the British Aggregates Association (BAA) has developed extensive contacts within the UK Government, the Civil Service and in Europe. We are continually engaged in correspondence and meetings with HM Treasury, HM Customs, DTI, Office of Fair Trading (OFT), Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM), Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and Environment Agency (EA) to ensure that the views of our members are properly represented on all relevant issues including Planning, the Environmental Legislation, Health & Safety, Road Transport, Competition and SME Support. Government has welcomed our involvement, recognising that the views and needs of smaller independent companies have not always been taken into account when forming new legislation.
