Services and Billing
Does this mean that only companies accredited by Ofcom are able to provide accurate price information?
Not necessarily. There are numerous companies that offer price comparison services for consumers.
Accreditation simply means that a company asked Ofcom to conduct an independent audit of their price comparison calculator.
The audit was successful and Ofcom accredited these companies under the Scheme, which means we consider that their price comparison information meets minimum standards for consumers.
Currently, six Price Comparison Websites have been granted accreditation.
Ofcom welcomes applications for accreditation from other price comparison companies.
