Approved Trader Scheme


Over the last 5 years we have worked in partnership with Checkatrade to provide an approved trader scheme to help Nottinghamshire consumers choose a trader they can trust and rely upon.

After 5 successful years working together Nottinghamshire County Council and Checkatrade have jointly agreed to end the Trading Standards Approved offer to Checkatrade members.  The partnership will come to an end on 31st March 2020.

We will continue to work with Checkatrade as the scheme comes to a close, meaning that some Nottinghamshire members of Checkatrade remain approved and will be able to display the Trading Standards approved logo until 31st March 2021.

You can check whether a business is still Trading Standards Approved   We would like to thank Checkatrade and the members of Checkatrade in Nottinghamshire for their support and services over the past few years.

Nottinghamshire County Council Trading Standards are committed to protecting consumers, supporting legitimate business and solving the UK’s rogue trade problem.

Trading Standards advises consumers to always be vigilant and ask for proof of identity before letting any tradesperson into their home. 

If you need to verify their identity do not rely on the number they give you as it may not be genuine. Verify their identity by ringing their employer using the number listed in the phonebook or online.
