Accreditation Explained

Knowing that your business adheres to a CTSI-approved Code of Practice will give your customers the valuable reassurance that they are dealing with a responsible business that offers high levels of service and workmanship.

The Costs

Knowing that your business adheres to a CTSI-approved Code of Practice will give your customers the valuable reassurance that they are dealing with a responsible business that offers high levels of service and workmanship.

  • The cost of annual accreditation to a single Code (Service & Repair Code or Vehicle Sales Code) is £195+VAT *
  • The cost to gain accreditation to a second Code if a business is already accredited is £99+VAT per year
  • The cost of dual accreditation is £294+VAT per annum

Businesses are able to sign up to more than one Code of Practice, if relevant, as long as they meet the necessary criteria.

If the final decision from the ombudsman goes against the accredited business following a breach of the Service and Repair Code or Vehicle Sales Code, and where the business has not made any attempt to resolve the issue, they will be required to pay £99+VAT per case.

* assuming an anticipated annual sales volume of 1200 vehicles or less. For sites with higher throughput please contact the Business Accreditation Team.
