BBB Accredited Businesses must adhere to BBB Accreditation Standards, a comprehensive set of policies, procedures and best practices representing trustworthiness in the marketplace. The strict standards verify that accredited companies reflect business integrity, honesty, transparency and responsiveness to customer concerns and privacy.
