Feel assured! The Magazine Production Company are proud to be a Trading Standards approved business.

As members since 2013, the company has consistently been registered with Trading Standards to show it operates in a legal, honest and fair way. Good service and price are important to the company.

Trading Standards - Magazine ProductionThis particular industry is not regulated so for publishers requiring services of this type, they can never be sure in who they are dealing with. The Magazine Production Company’s managing director, Dean Cook said, “Some clients received poor levels of service from previous magazine designers which included unsatisfactory workmanship, missing deadlines or leaving the publisher mid-production to pursue other activities.”

Trading Standards’ Buy with Confidence scheme is the largest of its kind in the UK and allows potential clients to independently check on companies they are considering.

For any company to be on the scheme they must pass a set of tailored background checks. The membership scheme is not given lightly – amongst other checks, each applicant will receive a visit from Trading Standards. A selection of clients would be contacted too. The company must abide by the scheme’s code of conduct, which requires them to follow the letter and spirit of the law.

Only if all the scheme requirements are met, will a business be granted membership, and their conduct will continue to be monitored. You can turn to Trading Standards for advice in the event of an unresolved issue.

Trading Standards act on the behalf of consumers and business and work for local government councils. They advise and enforce laws that govern the way consumers buy, sell, rent and hire goods and services.
