ABCB maintains a full-time Secretariat but members are involved in the affairs of the Association at every level. Policy and strategy are determined by a Management Committee and its decisions are endorsed, as appropriate, at General Meetings. Members of the Management Committee are Directors of the Association.

Sector Committees of members address matters relating to each of the certification areas covered in the Association’s Mission Statement. These committees report to the Management Committee. Additionally, members and ABCB staff represent the interests of the Association’s members on numerous relevant committees and working groups in the UK, Europe and internationally.
