All Checkatrade members are thoroughly vetted before they are displayed on our website. Over the years our vetting requirements
have been improved and adapted to keep up with government legislation and current laws as well to keep up with our own continuously
raising standards. On each of our members’ pages you will be able to see exactly which checks have been carried out and passed.
||We interview all our members to ensure that Checkatrade membership is right for them. This also gives us an indication of how they conduct themselves.
|Accreditations and Qualifications
|| Not all trades require accreditations so you may not see this on every one of our member’s profiles. However, any accreditations or qualifications you do see advertised on one of our trader’s profiles has been checked and verified by us.

||Each new member must provide us with a valid, in date copy of either a photo driving licence or passport so that we can verify their identity.
||All members are continually monitored with your help. Before they make it onto our site, we contact 5 of their previous customers to find out about their experience and to help us build of a profile of how they conduct their business.
||All new members are required to provide proof of address which is verified by a credible form(s) of documentation.
