Working with TrustMark to offer a new level of consumer protection and trade accreditation

Together, we'll jointly deliver a national Trading Standards supporting scheme, giving firms local reassurance with national recognition.

The Trading Standards Approval scheme is an accreditation that tells potential customers that the tradesperson not only complies with TrustMark's Government-endorsed Standards for quality of workmanship, but they also understand fair trading practices and have in place all the correct documentation and insurances.
