Bar Council Annual Report 2016-17

Aim 8 - Membership system and portal

Let’s chat.

Membership system and portal

During the course of 2016, the Bar Council made significant progress towards delivering a new information management system that will provide members of the Bar with an integrated one-stop point of communication with the Bar Council.

The new portal and membership system will allow barristers to pay for Practising Certificate Fees (PCF), renew their Bar Council membership through the Bar Representation Fee (BRF), and access other services, as well as update their professional status and personal information held by the Bar Council and Bar Standards Board (BSB). The portal will also allow members of the Bar to customise the content they receive from the Bar Council and the BSB.

Development of the programme is on track and the Bar Council is expecting to launch the new portal and membership system at the end of November 2017.
