The seven Glamorgan authorities’ Trading Standards departments are working together to provide support for an Approved Trader Scheme for the area.
The Scheme allows you to find a tradesman to carry out repair, maintenance or improvement work on your property who has been approved under the TrustMark standard.
TrustMark is the Government backed approved trader scheme designed to help ensure that traders are reputable and carry out good quality work. Businesses who become members of the scheme undertake to operate their business in a legal, honest and fair way and are vetted and monitored by a Trustmark Scheme Operator.
Merthyr Tydfil Trading Standards in conjunction with 6 other local authorities are working with Exor Management Services Limited who are a Scheme Operator to ensure that the Approved Trader Scheme is properly managed in line with TrustMark standards.
