Safe Local Trades – Trading Standards Checked

Trading Standards Checked

The Only Traders Vetted by Kent Trading Standards

For the last two or so years, Kent Trading Standards has been running an online
directory known as Trading Standards Checked. The purpose of this scheme is
to provide Kent residents with an online directory, allowing them to search and
find traders which Kent County Council can confirm are legitimate businesses
and “safe local trades”.
Trading Standards are keen that stakeholders in Kent use the scheme to employ
reputable traders, such as plumbers, electricians and so on and in turn this will
prevent the practice of “doorstep trader crime”.
The programme is still needing publicity, both for residents and traders within
our county. There are various resources available via the dedicated website here:
