Better Business Bureau serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington revoked the accreditation of 12 businesses in the first three months of 2014 for failing to uphold BBB Standards of Accreditation. BBB’s board of directors took action on the following companies between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2014.
BBB Accreditation is a privilege and signifies that businesses are accountable, honest, responsive, transparent and ethical. Expulsion from accreditation status is unfortunate, but BBB takes the enforcement of its standards seriously. Accredited companies promise to embody integrity in all business dealings—based on the BBB Code of Business Practices—and many of the accreditation revocations were due to failures in quickly responding to disputes in good faith.
Similarly, BBB denied accreditation to 17 additional companies during the same time period for not meeting standards.
Consumers turn to BBB daily for reliable online business reviews; when companies fail to uphold standards, BBB takes action to protect marketplace trust.
Better Business Bureau serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington is one of 113 in North America and the largest BBB by geographical service area.
