|Under The British Wool Marketing Scheme of 1950, the BWMB is required to register all producers with four or more sheep (with the exception of Shetland, which has its own arrangement).
There are currently over 46,000 registered producers.
The Board of 9 elected producer members, representing 9 different areas of the UK, and 2 Government appointees, meets eight times a year and reports back to nine regionally elected committees.
Day to day operations are run from the Board's headquarters in Bradford,
with small regional offices in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
