Trading Standards - Intelligence Requests
To process your application an 'intelligence' (Intel) request will be carried out by Trading Standards.
Intelligence requests ensure that you and your customers have confidence in the ability to meet the highest level of service and trust.
Trading Standards will check information that is restricted to officers and partners as well as that which is publicly available.
You can be assured that a proportionate approach is taken to findings; negative feedback would not automatically mean that you will be excluded from the scheme. The outcome would depend on the nature of the findings and you may be asked for further information or provided with advice to enable you to become compliant.
If you are not located in Buckinghamshire or Surrey your local Trading Standards Team many be consulted.
