BBB Structure

  
     

BBB is an authority on trust in the marketplace.  BBB sets and upholds high standards for ethical marketplace behavior.  BBB accreditation is a coveted honor earned by elite businesses and charities.  BBB is a valuable resource to turn to for objective, unbiased information on businesses and charities.  Our free BBB Business Reviews and BBB Wise Giving Reports help you make the right purchasing or donation decision.  BBB is also a significant distributor of consumer and business education information and tips and alerts about marketplace scams.  And BBB offers dispute resolution programs for consumers and businesses when there is difference in viewpoints. 

The first BBB was founded in 1912. Today, 113 BBBs serve communities across the U.S. and Canada, evaluating and monitoring more than 3 million local and national businesses and charities.

The Council of Better Business Bureaus(CBBB) is the network hub for BBBs in the US and Canada. Like BBBs, CBBB is dedicated to fostering honest and responsive relationships between businesses and consumers -- instilling consumer confidence and advancing a trustworthy marketplace for all.

The Canadian Council of Better Business Bureaus, established in June of 1966, serves in an advisory capacity to the Council of Better Business Bureaus for issues of importance to businesses and consumers in Canada. It also promotes the Better Business Bureau mission of advancing marketplace trust.
