CTSI Accreditation

The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) was founded in 1881 and is the professional member body for trading standards professionals and CTSI approved consumer codes of practice as well as alternative dispute resolution bodies.

In 2015, The Home Insulation & Energy Systems Quality Assured Contractors Scheme (HIES) code of practice received approval from CTSI. QASSS (operating the three consumer protection schemes HIES, DGCOS and HICS*) is also an approved ADR (alternative dispute resolution) body.

The schemes are audited once a year to ensure that we continue to fulfil CTSI requirements. A stringent onboarding and ongoing auditing regime conducted by QASSS ensures that only businesses that want to improve the consumer experience can become members of our consumer protection schemes. The benefits for consumers are that they can shop in confidence knowing that if something does go wrong when using one of our members, we will be able to help them.

Members can also benefit from access to expert advice and support from QASSS and also access to expert regulatory advice through our Primary Authority Partnership with West Yorkshire Trading Standards Service.

QASSS is also proud to operate an industry-leading approved dispute resolution scheme with disputes being resolved in 3.59 days (July 2019 – September 2019 average figures).

*Our schemes are: The Double Glazing & Conservatory Quality Assurance Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS), The Home Improvement Consumer Protection Scheme (HICS) and The Home Insulation & Energy Systems Quality Assured Contractors Scheme (HIES).
