Final recommendations for Officer of the British Empire and Member of the British Empire are considered in the United Kingdom. Recommendations for the Certificate and Badge of Honour are considered in the Cayman Islands.

It is stressed that for any award, long service is not enough. Nominations must be supported by a persuasive account of the outstanding or innovative or self-sacrificing services and achievements of the nominee, whether paid or unpaid, in one field or several, and what has raised them above those of others performing similar services.

Honours nomination forms can be requested by e-mail from [email protected] Copies can also be found on the Governor’s Office website at www.ukincayman.fco.gov.uk.

For those making nominations, they are encouraged to fully complete all the relevant sections. Once completed, the forms should be submitted, under confidential cover, to the Governor’s Office. While all recommendations will be acknowledged, the Governor’s Office cannot enter into correspondence about the action taken on them.
