TrustMark is the only UK government endorsed standards scheme for tradespeople working in the home improvement industry. Being TrustMark registered demonstrates that a company is dedicated to working to the highest standards, building consumer trust, and giving homeowners peace of mind that they are employing a reputable trader.

What does is mean to be TrustMark registered?

Becoming TrustMark registered enables a company or sole trader to show their continual commitment to providing a superior service to all their customers. The TrustMark brand is recognised across the UK and is associated with high quality work and consumer confidence. When you register as a TrustMark trader, you unlock a wealth of benefits.

TrustMark registered traders get access to a free to use Business Portal to directly communicate with their customers. The platform also allows you to upload business information to promote your business. This can include your specialisms, location, business logo, and images of completed projects. This will help you to build your customer base inside your focus area.

How do TrustMark and The CPA work together?

At The CPA, we are an official TrustMark scheme operator. This means that we encourage all CPA members who install products or provide services to UK homeowners to become TrustMark registered tradespeople. Traders who are TrustMark registered are more likely to be chosen to carry out work on people’s homes. This is because consumers know that TrustMark traders have:

  • Achieved a high level of competence in their field
  • Had their work regularly inspected in line with government quality standards
  • Committed to provide only the best level of service to all customers

Companies who want to carry out Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme work, and other local authority green initiative works must be TrustMark registered traders. This can open up lucrative work for traders within this sector, helping homeowners to save money and the UK to meet carbon emissions targets.
