Once a company has received their confirmed score for the year (following the completion of all required validation visits), they will be issued with a star rating and a certificate.
Star ratings give companies an opportunity to promote their considerate performance in an easy to understand, visual way to clients and the public.
Star ratings range from three to five, with half stars in between. They are based on the confirmed score that is issued by the Scheme once all visits have been conducted. Companies will receive a star rating in every registration period, as long as the required visits have been conducted.
The below table shows how the scores translate into stars:
|45 – 50|
|40 – 44|
|35 – 39|
|30 – 34|
|25 – 29|
Other star rated products are also available to help companies looking to promote their achievements.
