The process includes checks on trading terms and conditions, business documentation, website, insurance, insolvency and criminal record checks for those working in and around the homes of customers. References are also taken from existing and previous customers. Whilst the scheme is no outright guarantee as to workmanship, it is designed to offer consumers reassurance that a member business is operating within the law. There is ongoing monitoring through feedback from customers using feedback cards.
