Limitations of the scheme
The scheme is meant to help choose a tradesman depending on the opinion of their previous customers. Trading standards have vetted the tradesmen before joining the scheme, but they cannot guarantee the financial standing of the tradesman nor their health and safety procedures. Trading Standards cannot guarantee that the work will never give rise to a complaint. However, in the event of a dispute between a customer and a member of the Trusted Trader scheme, the dispute will be dealt with fairly and in accordance with the dispute resolution process.
