COUNCIL: Buy with Confidence is approved nationally  

BRACKNELL’S approved trader network has been nationally recognised as a flagship scheme.

Bracknell Forest Borough Council’s Buy with Confidence initiative has been acknowledged by the Office of Fair Trading and the Trading Standards Service for the benefits the service gives to residents – a list of traders who have been vetted by trading standards for reliability and trustworthiness.

Bracknell is one of nine councils across the South East who have adopted the scheme, which covers
businesses from architects to window cleaners, and the list has almost 1,000 members.

Rob Sexton, Bracknell Forest Borough Council’s head of trading standards and services, said: “The
national recognition of Buy With Confidence shows the importance of these schemes to the consumer.
“If you are looking for a reputable trader, or want to join up yourself, please do get in touch.

“We are also keen for consumers to tell us about reputable traders who they would like to recommend
for the scheme.” On applying to be a member, businesses in Bracknell Forest will receive a full assessment by trading standards officers to ensure they operate in a legal, honest and fair way and that they offer a customer friendly service.

Once approved, the businesses are expected to abide by the scheme’s code of practice.

Buy with Confidence is one of only three schemes which have become members of the new Local
Authority Assured Trader Scheme Network (LAATSN).

Colin Brown, chairman of the LAATSN national standards and support committee, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Buy With Confidence as a member of the network.

“The scheme is a really good example of partnership in action between local authority trading standards services and demonstrates just how such schemes can help a wide range of local businesses to understand consumer law and raise their levels of customer service.”
