Trust My Garage - Updates to CTSI Guidelines
The Trust My Garage Code of Practice became an approved code under the Consumer Codes Approval Scheme (CCAS) back in November 2015.
This means that if you’re a TMG member your business needs to display the correct logos, which verifies you as a member of the code scheme and also advertises Trust My Garage to your customers.
CCAS have released a new version of their branding guidelines that all TMG members should read to ensure compliance with the scheme. Please remember that non-adherence to the guidelines may result in CTSI terminating the right of Trust My Garage and/or the member to use the logo and possibly withdrawal of code approval.
The main updates are:
- Highlighting that the CTSI logo must only be used next to the code sponsor logo i.e. the Trust My Garage logo, your own business logo (page 2). You can download a copy of the joint TMG & CTSI logo .
- The removal of the requirement to use the Yoshki verification logo on your website. If you currently have the logo on your website you should remove the piece of code, as it will stop working on April 6th 2017. You may replace it with a normal image of the TMG/CTSI logos instead.
- An updated CTSI “button” logo for use on social media (page 11)
A copy of the revised guide and TMG/CTSI logos are available for download at any time in the TMG section of the IGA Members Area.
The CCAS is run under the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI).
