The BNF website was awarded the Information Standard Accreditation in 2011. The Information Standard is a certification scheme for health and social care information. It is an independent scheme supported by NHS England. Any organisation that produces health and social care information can apply to join the scheme. If an organisation successfully meets the rigorous quality criteria of the standard and becomes certified, it can place the quality mark on its materials. The quality mark is a quick and easy way for the public to identify reliable and trustworthy sources of information. The scheme’s certified members are a mix of national charities, NHS organisations, voluntary, statutory and commercial organisations. The scheme is growing as organisations are in the process of gaining certification. For further information please go to

The British Nutrition Foundation shall hold responsibility for the accuracy of the information they publish and neither the Scheme Operator nor the Scheme Owner shall have any responsibility whatsoever for costs, losses or direct or indirect damages or costs arising from inaccuracy of information or omissions in information published on the website on behalf of the British Nutrition Foundation.

To help ensure our web pages are as clear, informative and helpful as possible, we have an external web panel that provides structured feedback on BNF web pages. To join the BNF web panel or for further information about what the work entails, contact Sarah Coe
