Buy with Confidence

Local businesses are able to join a new scheme that will help the public tackle the problem of 'rogue traders'. The Buy with Confidence Scheme is a national initiative which vets and approves legitimate local businesses before allowing them to join and promote themselves as a reputable company to consumers.

The scheme provides consumers with a list of local businesses who have been approved and who have given their commitment to trading fairly.

Run locally by us, the scheme is open to all types of traders and businesses in the Falkirk Council area who meet the requirements.


How to apply

Buy with Confidence membership is not automatic.

Businesses must pass a set of rigorous background checks and visits by our Trading Standards officers before they are invited to join.

Good references from previous customers are required and businesses must agree to follow a code of conduct which makes sure they are complying with the law. You can find out more information at the scheme's national website www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk.

All businesses accepted into the scheme are regularly monitored to make sure they are meeting the scheme’s high standards.
