World Consumer Rights Day, celebrated on March 15 each year, aims to raise awareness about consumer rights and needs. Professional standards schemes help improve professional standards to help protect consumers.
More than 86,000 lawyers, accountants, surveyors, and other professionals across Australia participate in a professional standards scheme.
You’ll be receiving advice from people who, through their association, have committed to upholding their obligations as professionals and to delivering quality services. Professional standards schemes ensure that, if anything goes wrong, your professional adviser has insurance or assets available to meet damages awarded.
Professional standards schemes are approved and supervised by the independent Professional Standards Councils. Contact us to find out more.
