Policies & Forms

BCSP applicants, candidates, and credential holders must abide by the BCSP Bylaws and uphold the Code of Ethics.

BCSP’s Commitment to Fairness and Impartiality

The Board of Certified Safety Professionals is committed to fairness in every aspect of our operation. We have intentionally structured ourselves to segregate responsibilities in our organization to maintain candidate confidentiality, operate with impartiality, and ensure objectivity.

BCSP’s Complaint Policies

  1. BCSP has a policy which guides the receipt, evaluation, and decision-making on complaints related to BCSP certification activities. These complaints must be received in writing addressed to BCSP headquarters, received via email at bcsp@bcsp.org, or by some other written means. The complaint must include the complainant’s name and contact information.
  2. BCSP also has policies that guide the handling of ethics violations, unauthorized use, and appeals. Guidelines related to these types of activities are located at the bottom of this page.

Non-Discrimination Policy

BCSP evaluates all candidates seeking certification without regard to religion, ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation.

Test Accommodations

It is the policy of BCSP to provide test accommodations that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA). No candidate for certification, in the U.S. or otherwise, shall suffer discrimination for having a disability as described in the ADA or ADAAA.
