An Accredited Business by the BBB asserts that the business has met the BBB accreditation standards, underscoring the commitment to trust, ethics and resolution. BBB Accredited Businesses will always act on good faith to resolve their consumers' complaint and maintain their reliability.
BBB Accredited Businesses pay a fee for accreditation review, and are monitored for continued compliance with BBB standards and services to the public. BBB Code of Business Practices represents the 8 standards to obtain and maintain business accreditation. These eight principles summarize important elements of creating and maintaining trust in business.
Businesses based in the United States and Canada that meet these standards can submit their applications and undergo the process of becoming accredited by the BBB. BBB accreditation does not mean that the business' products or services have been evaluated or endorsed by BBB, or that BBB has made a determination as to the business’ product quality or competency in performing functions.
Businesses are under no obligation to seek BBB accreditation.
