Updated guidance – For accredited persons – Working Standards

Trading Standards have updated the working standards page.

Trading Standards have updated the working standards page on our website. The changes include:

  • The ‘Verification by Trading Standards’ section has been enhanced to include our procedures; formally covered by the now removed ‘Submission of working standards during COVID-19’ section.
  • A link to Technical Policy TS-027 has been included.
  • The ‘Verification by another organisation’ heading has been changed to  ‘Verification not by Trading Standards’ and has been amended to confirm our requirements.
  • A new ‘sharing resources’ section has been added to provide guidance for an Accredited Person when they wish to use working standards that they do not own.

Please note that the website content is now to be considered the ‘source of truth’ for all accreditation related information and should be consulted by applicants and Accredited Persons alike.
