Becoming a DBA Expert

The DBA Experts Register comprises design industry experts who provide fee-based professional advice. It is not open to suppliers of products or systems or those who derive their business from commission.

To ensure the integrity of the register we identified the following key criteria, which must be met to ensure that you are eligible to join:

  • experts must have a minimum of 3 years relevant design industry experience in their given area.
  • experts must be able to provide us with 3 referees from within the last 3 years.

A one-off non-refundable registration fee of £250 plus vat covers the administration costs incurred in the vetting process. This involves us securing three references for you. If successful you will then be asked to subscribe to the register for which there is an annual subscription fee of £1,040 plus vat.

The registration and subscription fees are per expert and not per company. Companies cannot join.

What do I get for my annual subscription?

  • Subscription to the DBA newsletter Insight.
