A new Registered Market Traders Scheme is being piloted by Carmarthenshire County Council’s Trading Standards team in partnership with market managers.
The aim in setting up the scheme is to further improve the standard and quality of market trading in the county. Its purpose is to reduce and eliminate the number of complaints received and also to build a working relationship with the market traders.
Roger Edmunds, from Trading Standards said: “The Registered Market Trader scheme should hopefully act as a valuable resource for guidance and information to all different types of businesses within Carmarthenshire markets.
“There will be a number of benefits, including the use of a recognised logo which should hopefully provide consumers with extra confidence in dealing with those traders that have signed up to the scheme”.
The information provided in the packs will help market traders to stay on the right side of the law.
There will be advice with regards to warranty policies, as research has demonstrated that a good warranty policy can provide an organisation with a significant and competitive market advantage.
Richard Evans, Carmarthenshire County Council’s Property Manager, said: “We are pleased to be working in partnership with Trading Standards to offer this scheme which will be of great benefit to market traders across the county. I hope all traders take up this opportunity and will get on board with the scheme.”
Assured trader schemes like Carmarthenshire’s Registered Traders Scheme (which has already been launched and has been running successfully since 2004), are valuable to local communities and provide a signpost for consumers to reputable local businesses.
The schemes assist in marginalising rogue traders, helping businesses understand consumer law and allowing consumers the benefit of raised customer service standards.
Richard Wills, owner of Crumbs Cafe which has signed up to the scheme, said: “We welcome any information and advice which will help us to trade effectively.”
