GGF AND FENSA TO RAISE PROFILES AT CTSI SYMPOSIUM 2018
- Posted 03/05/2018
The GGF and FENSA are to exhibit and present at the annual Chartered Trading Standards Institute Symposium taking place in Nottingham on 4th-6th June
The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) Symposium is a great opportunity for GGF and FENSA to network with Trading Standards Officers but also, and more importantly, a chance to engage with key influencers from like-minded organisations such as the Advertising Standards Authority, Citizen’s Advice, Which?, TrustMark and of course the CTSI.
GGF Head of Membership and Training Richard Hearn and FENSA Director of Membership Chris Beedel will jointly deliver a presentation on the topic of “GGF & FENSA - helping Trading Standards to protect & delight consumers”.
This will convey the benefits of the award-winning GGF consumer website MyGlazing.com and the Federation's comprehensive range of consumer protections. These include the GGF Conciliation Scheme, which helps Members and homeowners resolve any disputes, and the improved Deposit Indemnity Fund which safeguards consumers’ deposits in the unlikely event that the GGF Member company that has carried out their installation ceases to trade.
In his part of the presentation, Chris from FENSA will highlight the important role his company plays in supporting Trading Standards. This includes doing its part to regulate the industry and assisting in the prosecution of rogue companies misusing the FENSA logo.
"It is critical that when a company states it is a FENSA member - which implies that it has been inspected and audited for compliance with the Building Regulations - that this is true. This is not just important for consumers but for FENSA Members, who choose to undertake work legally and 'play by the rules'," Chris says.
