BADA - British Antique Dealers' Association

The British Antique Dealers' Association (BADA) is the trade association for the leading antique dealers in Britain. Since its foundation in 1918 BADA has set the standard for trading in the antiques business. Its main aim is to establish and maintain confidence between its members and the public, both in buying and selling.

Members are elected to the association for their high business standards and expertise. They adhere to a vigorously enforced code as laid down in the association's Bye-laws. After a thorough election procedure dealers continue to have their membership renewed and confirmed annually.

BADA members pride themselves on their reputation for integrity, wide knowledge of their chosen field of specialisation and the high quality of their stock. It is for this reason that a member of the public can have confidence when buying from, or selling to, a member of the BADA.

There are approximately four hundred dealers throughout Britain who have met the very high standards that BADA demands.

The Association provides safeguards for those who deal with its members, including independent arbitration if disputes arise.
