Punch Taverns has become the first pub company to achieve BIIBAS accreditation for its code of practice under version six of the industry framework code, which was released in March this year.

The code, which now needs to be reviewed and accredited every three years, covers everything from starting up and the day-to-day running of a pub business, to seeking advice and what to do at the end of an agreement.  

Punch partners can access the code online, while hard copies will be distributed to all new partners and any existing member who requests one.

“We encourage our partners to familiarise themselves with the Code of Practice at every step of their journey with us,” David Pawson, Punch central operations manager,” said.

“We are delighted to be the first pub company to achieve accreditation having undertaken a stringent process with BIIBAS to ensure our code is fully compliant with version six of the industry framework code. I believe that this reflects our continued commitment to working with our Partners in a fair, open and transparent manner.”

BII chairman Bernard Brindley added: “We are pleased to accredit Punch Taverns' Code of Practice in line with the Industry Framework Code version six and are also pleased to see that they have gone over and above the IFC providing further clarity to the way they will do business with their partners.”
