TrustMark Registration through Fair Trades - Approved Scheme Operator

Tradesmen cannot register with TrustMark directly, they need to belong to be inspected and approved by one of TrustMark's Scheme Operators, for example via a recognised trade body such as FairTrades, NICEIC, NCCA etc.

We are not TrustMark, FairTrades is one of several Scheme Operators able to assist its members with TrustMark registration. TrustMark is the nationwide Government backed scheme to help consumers find reputable tradesmen to carry out work in the home improvement industry. TrustMark is a sign that reputable tradesmen are carrying out the work for home owners, not rogue traders! Registered companies can now achieve TrustMark approval through membership to the FairTrades Association. (FairTrades membership fees apply)
