BBB Accreditation Process
Not every business is eligible for BBB Accreditation. Businesses must be able to meet, maintain and agree to the
BBB Code of Business Practices (Accreditation Standards)
in order to be eligible for and maintain BBB Accreditation. The BBB Code of Business Practices represents sound advertising, selling and customer service practices that enhance customer trust and confidence in business. The Code is built on the BBB Standards for Trust, eight principles that summarize important elements of creating and maintaining trust in business. In order to be eligible for Accreditation a business must complete an Accreditation application.
Upon receipt of a fully completed BBB Application for Accreditation, BBB staff:
Reviews the application
Researches the business
Verifies the information presented in the application
May request additional information
May request proof of specific information on the application
After the review and verification process, BBB will then evaluate if the business meets the BBB Accreditation Standards.
Once BBB has finished its evaluation, the application for BBB Accreditation is either approved or denied.
When your BBB Accreditation is approved your monthly fee is processed.
