Buy with Confidence
In response to concerns about ‘rogue traders’ which are often highlighted in the media, a partnership of Local Authority Trading Standards Services have taken a ground-breaking step by putting together the Buy With Confidence Scheme.
The scheme provides consumers with a list of local businesses which have given their commitment to trading fairly. Every business listed has undergone a series of detailed checks before being approved as a member of the scheme.
Buy With Confidence is the largest scheme of its kind nationally and continues to expand its geographical coverage. A number of Trading Standards Services have joined recently and you can check whether your local area is participating by checking visiting www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk
Buy With Confidence is run through the cooperation of a number of Trading Standards Services. Only if all the scheme requirements are met, will a business be granted membership, and their conduct will continue to be monitored thereafter.
The Buy With Confidence scheme is designed to ensure that member businesses comply with relevant legislation, resolve any consumer complaints in a fair and timely manner and understand their obligations to consumers.*
