The UK Harmony Brigade adheres to the Equality and Diversity Policy published by BABS (British Association of Barbershop Singers), and all brigade participants are required to follow the policy requirements contained therein, subject to the sanctions indicated in the paragraphs below.

Participants are required to conduct themselves in a respectful and appropriate manner both with other participants and with any staff or members of the public with whom they come in contact in the course of brigade activities.
