Better Business Partnership

The Better Business Partnership (BBP) is the trusted trader scheme operating in Perth and Kinross. The aim is to help traders comply with the law while improving consumer protection through a partnership approach.

Concerns are also raised about bogus traders and unscrupulous callers who, after carrying out less than satisfactory work, disappear leaving a mobile phone number as the only contact.

In an attempt to address these particular problems the Trading Standards service of Perth & Kinross Council and D Division of Police Scotland have created the Better Business Partnership.
