Trader Register

At Walsall Trading Standards we are all too well aware of the problems caused by rogue traders, especially in the building and home improvement sectors.  In addition to the financial loss and distress caused to consumers, rogue traders also have a negative impact on the business of reputable traders in the areas where they operate.  
We have developed the Walsall TraderRegister in response to these concerns.  Walsall TraderRegister is not an approval scheme but it is a register of businesses in the Walsall area that will be promoted by Trading Standards and its partner agencies to consumers in the borough as a means of finding a reputable trader and avoiding falling victim to rogue traders.
In order to be registered with the scheme businesses will have to demonstrate their commitment to fair and honest trading practices and delivering good customer service.  In exchange for this commitment, businesses benefit directly from referrals as well as from the fairer trading environment created by the scheme.  For consumers, it provides advice and information on employing a trader.
Membership costs £80 + vat, and if you join the Walsall TraderRegister you will be able to use the logo in your advertising.  
It is simple to apply. You can join online at
www.traderregister.org.uk
where you can also upload your logo to be included in your entry on the register. However, you can download and complete a paper application form (PDF 167KB). You can also download a copy of the code of conduct (PDF 179KB) and a guide to the application process (PDF 160KB).  
If you want to discuss the Walsall TraderRegister further and find out more about how it can benefit your business, please call on 01922 653040 and ask to speak to one of the team.
