The following information contains terms and conditions applicable to both users of our website and customers of Cloud Quality Consulting Ltd. For terms and conditions relating to use of the Trade Engine platform, please see our separate Terms & Conditions of Use.
Status as a BSI Affiliate
Cloud Quality Consulting Ltd. (herein, CQC) t/a Trade Engine is a registered BSI Affiliate. This provides us with access to BS and ISO standards for distribution to our customers, including volume licensing of such standards. Though we have provided a comprehensive platform that implements a variety of standards, the fact we are a BSI Affiliate does not guarantee our customers’ adherence with these standards, since it is their responsibility to ensure and be able to demonstrate that they meet any such requirements and that their Quality Management System is appropriately implemented within their organisation.
Although Cloud Quality Consulting Ltd. t/a Trade Engine is active in training and consulting to industry participants in the Green Deal scheme (including Green Deal Providers, Green Deal Advisors and Green Deal Installers), we remain completely impartial of any such organisations. We do work on behalf of such organisations in the areas of Quality Management and Compliance, but we are not linked to any of them and do not offer funding or finance mechanisms ourselves.

Although we make every effort to ensure this website and our promitional materials are up-to-date, we cannot guarantee access to any offers or promotions. You are advised to check eligibility and availability with a member of our team by telephoning us. We reserve the right for any promotions to carry additional terms and conditions other than those listed on this website.
