I would think the issue is more of allowing "interantaional" arbs and
employers understand where BCMA might fit in the NQF scheme than in inserting
BCMA into it operationally. If a UK arb comes to US with the PPJ cert where
does that fit relative to BCMA is going to be an employer's question.
Inverse if a BCMA goes to the UK.
I can say from my slight exposure that the first round of BCMAs are quite
highly qualified. Generally the very most experiecned types. I imagine that
as more and more take the exam that may dilute.

Most in the UK won't know what BCMA is, I can't see it being offered
here particularly because we have better qualifications already. There
isn't going to be a UK version at present. BCMA is difficult to judge in
terms of level with in the UK. I am of the opinion that it falls at
about level 2 1/2 because of the way it is examined and the narrowness
of the syllabus when compared to our quals.
