Trusted Trader
Managing local Trading Standards vetted trader schemes

Suffolk Trusted Trader is open for applications

8th September 2023

Suffolk County Council has set up an official Suffolk Trusted Trader Scheme, which is now open for applications.


The primary focus of the scheme is to protect Suffolk residents by having a list of reputable traders vetted and monitored by Suffolk Trading Standards that can be used locally.


The aims of the Suffolk Trusted Trader scheme are to:

  • Increase consumer confidence.
  • Help protect citizens from doorstep crime.
  • Encourage good business practices within local businesses.
  • Promote vetted local businesses to the community.


The scheme will be the only official trader scheme in Suffolk that is backed by Suffolk County Council with members who are vetted and monitored by Trading Standards.


Applications are being invited for most business sectors that are based and conduct business within Suffolk.


It will be a professional membership scheme with a single annual fee of £252 including VAT and no other costs. 


To help launch the scheme, the first 50 applications will be able to join at a 50% reduced fee.
