OFT approved codes explained - the OFTs approved codes scheme has now been closed



The OFT Approved code logo is now being withdrawn

The OFT Approved code logo was designed to help you find a business is operating under a trade body that has an approved code of practice - providing you with high standards of customer service and ensuring your rights as a consumer are better protected.

From April 2013, under changes to the consumer landscape protection regime, 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 the Consumer Codes Approval Scheme. You can find further details of the TSI scheme here.
