BEDA Tool Box
The BEDA Toolbox harnesses a wealth of knowledge and resources from amongst BEDA members. We offer several free templates and sample documents for use in your professional practice. The BEDA toolbox is extended and updated continuously.
The Toolbox is divided into several sections;
BEDA Policy Recommendations
This section contains documents, developed from BEDA board discussions, which serve as policy recommendations. They are intended to create consistency in how practitioners in the BEDA member states operate. These recommendations are available to everyone.
- Code of Conduct for Designers
- Policy on Free Pitching
- BEDA Competition Guidelines
- NACE Codes Fact Sheet
Guidelines and Templates
Documents in this section provide inspiration and serve as “checklists” when developing brief documents, planning and calculating projects, and preparing for communication between clients and suppliers of design services. The documents are designed to be equally useful for both parties, and are available to everyone.
- Agency Selection Guide
- Briefing Template
- Getting Started
- Pitch Brief

Model contracts, agreements, and other samples are available exclusively to members of BEDA and their member organisations. Use your personal code to access the members only section of the website. If you do not remember your code, please contact the BEDA office.
