Trade bodies taking part

The OFT's Consumer Codes Approval Scheme has now been closed.

From 2 April 2013, under changes to the consumer landscape, introduced by Government, the OFT will no longer be responsible for approving consumer facing codes of practice.  The Government has invited the Trading Standards Institute (TSI) to operate a successor scheme to CCAS. You can find further details of the TSI scheme here.
