Trusted Trader is a local business partnership which aims to:

increase consumer confidence
promote good practice within local businesses
help protect residents from doorstep crime.

It was started by Dundee City Council Trading Standards Service in 2005. Since then the scheme has expanded across Scotland. Each Council is responsible for their own scheme, but Trusted Trader follows a standard Code of Practice tailored to the local needs of each local authority.

Each Council backs and oversee the scheme, with the vetting process carried out by Trading Standards Officers. The link below will let you see the scope of the vetting Trading Standards do before a business can become a member of this scheme

Trading Standards also ensure Traders adhere to the Code of Practice and will intervene in disputes when required.
