It is up to each requester to determine who, in their organization, has the authority to purchase and/or delegate purchasing responsibilities. Your request will be forwarded to this individual for approval. Normally the Authorizing Agent should NOT be the Buyer.

Be aware that if you identify yourself as your Authorizing Agent, BSI will carefully evaluate these requests for authenticity.

IF YOUR AGENCY HAS OTHER AUTHORIZATION POLICIES WE NEED TO BE NOTIFIED.

We understand that our customers have a diverse set of purchasing responsibilities. This Registration Page is designed to handle these diverse responsibilities. Buyers who purchase for a single agency need only enter the address in the Primary Billing Information box. Other buyers may purchase for more than one billing agency. Additional Billing boxes are provided and should be completed similarly to the primary information box.

Buyers who ship to a single location need only enter that address in the Primary Shipping Address box. Other buyers may have multiple shipping locations for their Primary Billing Address. In this situation, multiple shipping addresses can and should be entered into the Primary Shipping Address(es) box. When a Buyer has more than one Billing Address, then Shipping Address(es) for the additional Billing addresses should be entered into the corresponding Shipping Address boxes that are provided. Do not concern yourself with other specific shipping information while registering. You will be prompted for contact names, phone numbers, special instructions, etc. when you place an order.
