PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS INDUSTRYNEWS tncinfo@sidey.co.uk SUPPORTING CONSUMER CODES CAMPAIGN » » THE GLASS AND GLAZING Federation (GGF) is fully supporting the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) Consumer Codes PR Campaign urging more companies to become part of an approved consumer code. In February 2016, the GGF’s Consumer Code of Practice was approved by the CTSI Consumer Codes Approval Scheme and since then the GGF and its consumer facing Members have made huge strides in the last 12 months. The GGF’s activity promoting its Consumer Code and Members engagement with the overall GGF consumer support package is justified by the latest GGF independent consumer survey which shows consumers want to deal with companies adhering to a consumer code of practice. Brian Smith, GGF Director of Home Improvement said: “It’s been a solid and active 12 months since the GGF Consumer Code was approved by Trading Standards but it is clearly been worthwhile. All of the GGF’s consumer facing Members are adhering to the code and we have only had to expel one Member for breaching the code. We are delighted to support Trading Standards’ campaign to promote consumer codes to businesses and consumers.” The GGF Consumer Code can be viewed on and downloaded from www.MyGlazing.com. http://www.ggf.org.uk Ready to release new catalogue » » MIGHTON PRODUCTS HAS recently signed off on its eye catching new catalogue, available in both printed and digital options from the beginning of April.
