What the tScheme Approved Service Mark signifies

When a trust service carries the tScheme Mark, you can be secure in the knowledge that:

  • the service has been thoroughly evaluated against rigorous criteria by independent experts;
  • the service provider has agreed to keep to these criteria;
  • the service provider subscribes to the tScheme Code of Conduct;
  • the service provider has agreed to act promptly and fairly to remedy faults.

For each service, tScheme approval is regularly reviewed and may be withdrawn.

This Grant of Approval does not affirm or endorse any claims of conformance to standards or adherence to guidelines not explicitly listed as forming part of the service assessment.

The tScheme Code of Conduct

Participants in the electronic trust services industry strive:

  • to act in an honest, fair, reasonable and trustworthy manner;
  • not to bring electronic trust services into disrepute;
  • to provide clear information about what each electronic trust service provides, including limitations and exclusions, to those who rely on that service;
  • to meet service commitments and obligations;
  • to be proactive in identifying and correcting faults and deficiencies in electronic trust services;
  • to operate in accordance with appropriate standards;
  • to act promptly in resolving complaints relating to electronic trust services.

Why tScheme approval?

It’s the mark which says your service meets the highest standards of trust.
