Licensing and trademark

Bath SDR uses the QuIP methodology and name under licence from the University of Bath. The name QuIP is trademarked in association with the methodology and use of the name without a licence is limited to non-profit and communication purposes only. The trademark exists to protect the name and methodology from being abused by those lacking relevant training and/or experience, and to prevent any commercial organisation claiming exclusive rights over them. The trademark is not intended to stop other organisations or people using the approach as part of their work.

If you wish to use the name QuIP in relation to any paid work, please contact Bath SDR to discuss appropriate training and accreditation by the University of Bath or Bath SDR, which would then allow you to benefit from a sub-licence to use the name and approach.

If you’d like to check the accreditation status of a contractor, please don’t hesitate to contact us at
