The British Drilling Association (BDA) is a trade association, formed in 1976, to look after the needs of the land drilling and geotechnical sector in its many formats. BDA members come together to raise standards; improve health & safety; train and educate and promote industry skills, to all those involved in drilling and geotechnics. BDA members are expected to uphold the highest standards and we recommend that anybody that is procuring services or suppliers in this sector, do so from a BDA Member.
