bira legal: Helpful advice for bira members about the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and 2012 Olympic Games.

With these two exciting major events happening very soon across the UK, we hope that you will be maximising every opportunity to ‘fly the flag’ for you and your customers. We’ve received a few member enquiries about what you can and can’t do around both events. So we’ve put together a quick reference guide to the various official resources, to help you find the information quickly.

These sources give you general advice as well as specific brand restrictions that you need to be aware of to ensure you’re trading legally. We couldn’t possibly cover all eventualities or queries, but the following websites are a really good starting point:
