Worcestershire Trading Standards are pleased to announce that we are now working in partnership with Checkatrade to provide an approved trader scheme to help Worcestershire’s consumers choose a trader they can trust and rely upon.
Each trader under this scheme undergoes a comprehensive vetting procedure and continuous monitoring of customer feedback as well as being checked by Trading Standards following the Checkatrade vetting process.
Worcestershire Trading Standards, in partnership with Checkatrade, are committed to protecting customers, supporting legitimate business and solving the UK’s rogue trader problem.
Trading Standards Approved means that an approved business understands that they are required to adhere to certain trading laws. Checks have been carried out by Trading Standards using partner agencies, intelligence databases and trader history. Trading Standards Approved ensures maximum consumer protection and stops rogue traders. Whilst they cannot guarantee the quality of goods or services, Local Authorities are confident that once checked traders will act responsibly and deal with their customers fairly and honestly. Consumers will always have the opportunity to reflect this when giving feedback.
