In response to concerns about ‘rogue traders’ which are often highlighted in the media, a partnership of Local Authority Trading Standards Services took the ground-breaking step of 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.
We consider that Trading Standards has the right expertise and motivation to offer a scheme, which offers genuine benefits to consumers and businesses.
Accordingly, the Buy With Confidence scheme is administered by local authority Trading Standards Services directly, and is not outsourced.
Becoming a North Wales Buy With Confidence Member
A business must first apply or be recommended to join the scheme and must then pass a set of tailored background checks. Membership of the scheme is not given lightly, each applicant will have their complaints history reviewed and will receive a visit from Trading Standards.
Good references are required from previous customers and applicants must agree to abide by the scheme’s code of conduct, which requires them to follow the letter and spirit of the law. (Criminal records basic disclosure may also be required in some circumstances.)
If you are confident in your business and want to apply to advertise yourselves as Trading Standards Approved Traders, please visit the Buy With Confidence webpage
