In what situations might using BP be a more appropriate time scale and for BCE/CE?

The BP scale is sometimes used for dates established by means other than radiocarbon dating, such as stratigraphy. Stratigraphy is a branch of geology concerned with the study of rock layers (strata) and layering (stratification). It is primarily used in the study of sedimentary and layered volcanic rocks.Source(s): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Before_Present
