Important information about the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) scheme

As you may be aware, the introduction of new regulations regarding microbusiness customers means there is a new requirement for suppliers to only work with TPIs, Brokers and Sub-Brokers who are signed up to the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) scheme. This is a new scheme managed by Ombudsman Services whereby any TPI (including Aggregators and their Sub-Brokers) who service microbusinesses will need to register with the scheme by the 31st August 2022 to ensure the registration is active by the 1st December 2022. More information regarding the scheme can be found here
