- own existing credits created under the former BioBanking Scheme (termed BBAM credits) and have obtained a statement of reasonable credit equivalence to determine the equivalent number of BAM credits; or
- are landholders establishing a BSA who have obtained a Business case as a minimum level of assessment.
